The data presented by the authors tend to verify the results of a similar series of tests on samples of Gerogia kaolinitic clay that had been consolidated from a high water content (145%) slurry to almost 3,500 kPa in 200-mm diam. stainless steel consolidometers. The high pressure consolidometers and triaxial apparatus enabled specimens to be tested over a wide range of overconsolidation ratios (OCR). Differences between the authors' and the present results are attributed to differences in the clay and the sensitivity of A sub f to differences in test procedures and specimen disturbance. However, the trends indicated are in essence the same-decreasing a sub f with increasing OCR.
