Abstract: An elastoviscoplastic constitutive model shows that a strain rate effect parameter is related to the coefficient of secondary compression. The relation was verified experimentally by test results on four different clayey soils. The effect of a sample thickness on amount of primary consolidation is discussed on the basis of the model.
