AMELIORATION OF CONSOLIDATION PROPERTIES LABORATORY TEST BY USING A PERMEAMETER

AMELIORATION DES MESURES DES PROPRIETES DE CONSOLIDATION AU LABORATOIRE A L'AIDE DU MONTAGE PERMEAMETRIQUE

The readings of the settlement of a sample during a standard oedometer step loading test provide the values of the parameters of compressibility and indirectly of the permeability. The present article shows how a very simple permeability device available in most laboratories can be used to determine the modulus, the permeability, and the consolidation properties of the soils. The described procedure shortens the duration of the test and prevents the interruption of the loading required to carry out the traditional permeability tests. Four experimental examples allow the assessment of the merits of the simulation by computer of the test procedure.
