SETTLEMENT OF EMBANKMENTS ON SOFT CLAYS. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

A discussion of a paper with the aforementioned title by R.E. Olson, published in this journal (Volume 124, Number 4, April 1998), is presented. The discusser maintains that the unit for coefficients of consolidation proposed by the author--the terzaghi--should be in sq m/s rather than sq m/day, so as not to violate the principles of the SI system of units. Discussion is followed by closure from the author.
