by T.W. Lambe,

Serial Information: Journal of the Soil Mechanics and Foundations Division, 1962, Vol. 88, Issue 2, Pg. 19-48

Document Type: Journal Paper


Comparison is presented of predicted and measured excess pore-water pressures set up in soft, saturated foundation clay by placement of heavy preload; basic equation from which several sets of predicted pore pressures are obtained; agreement between best set of estimated pore pressures and field measured values is remarkably close.
