CONSTRUCTION OF STRUCTURES ON COMPRESSIBLE, SATURATED CLAYEY SOIL

CONSTRUCTION D'OUVRAGES SUR LES SOLS ARGILEUX MOUS SATURES

This is a translation into French of the original Russian book published in 1973. A study is made of the basic properties of saturated compressible clayey soil (compressibility, permeability, ultimate strength, structural properties) as they were shown in tests carried out over 10 years in the laboratory and in-situ. Details are given of methods of accelerating consolidation and compaction (use of carpets of sand, drains and sand drains, chalk drains and drainage trenches) and structural design methods which take special account of the special behaviour of clayey soil. /TRRL/
