Serial Information: Journal of the Soil Mechanics and Foundations Division, 1961, Vol. 87, Issue 1, Pg. 29-41

Document Type: Journal Paper


Use of logarithm of time methods based on laboratory consolidation or oedometer tests; readings of compression dial as function of time; new technique is presented for determination of coefficients of consolidation in soils from volume changes which take place during consolidation process; it utilizes ratio of compressions taking place up to different times, so that continuous compression-time readings are not required.
