Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Sedimentation Consolidation Models—Predictions and Validation

Abstract: Methods of predicting initial consolidation upon thawing and the subsequent consolidation with time under increasing pressures are presented in terms of changes in unit weight. Procedures for conducting one-dimensional consolidation tests on originally frozen specimens are described and analysis of laboratory tests with respect to total and differential settlement are discussed.
