Abstract: Compression of peat and organic clay deposits is characterized using a simple rheological model in which structural viscosity is assumed to be linear. The model utilizes three empirical parameters pertaining to primary compression, secondary compression, and rate of secondary compression, respectively. The parameters for primary and secondary compressibility depend on the stress level. The secondary compressibility and the rate factor for secondary compression are non-linear.
