MSc thesis, Civil Engineering.
The changes of permeability with temperature were investigated by running constant head measurements at various temperatures. An indirect analysis, based on estimation of the coefficient of volume change m v, showed that the indirect method of estimating the permeability from consolidation tests should be considered carefully. Intrinsic Cited by: Predominates in cohesion less soils and unsaturated clay; Immediate settlement analysis are used for all fine-grained soils including silts and clays with a degree of saturation soils with large co-efficient of permeability (say above m/s) 2. Consolidation Settlement (ΔHc).
The final consolidation settlement of a layer of clay m thick is calculated to be mm. The coefficient of consolidation for the loading range is mm²/min. There is two-way drainage, upward and downward. Calculate the time required for (a) 90% consolidation settlement, (b) a . consolidation of clay, with special reference to influence of vertical sand drains. the special problems of soil consolidation are discussed which are met when vertical sand drains are used in order to accelerate the rate of settlement of clay. a review is given of some important theories of consolidation.
With C c as the slope of the e-log σ ′ line and M the slope of the e-log K line, a parameter C c / M is identified which is found to govern the rate of consolidation. In this paper, an analytical closed form solution is obtained for vertical consolidation considering the variation in the compressibility and permeability. Scope.

Introduction. Permeability is defined as “the property or capacity of a porous rock, sediment, or soil for transmitting a fluid without impairment of the structure of the medium” (Gary et al., ). The permeability (hydraulic conductivity) of various sediments is illustrated by Mitchell () in Figure 1.
However, small size specimens may not be totally ct evaluations of the permeability from consolidation tests are shown to be unreliable particularly in structured natural clays: evaluation of k from c v measurements in step-loaded tests gives much too low values, constant rate of strain tests strongly overestimate k in the Cited by: Variable permeability, Compressibility, Soil consolidation.
1 Introduction. Consolidation is a process by which. decrease in soils volume. It occurs when is stress applied to a soil that causes the soil particles to pack together more tightly, therefore reducing its bulk volume.
When this occurs in a soil that is saturated with water, water. 22ème Congrès Français de Mécanique Lyon, 24 au 28 Août Study of the permeability of clay soils measured by detecting the swelling and its kinetics A.

RESUME Le coefficient de perméabilité de l'eau dans l'argile dont est File Size: KB. Abstract. As explained in Chapter 3, consolidation is the gradual reduction in volume of a fully saturated soil of low permeability due to drainage of some of the pore water, the process continuing until the excess pore water pressure set up by an increase in total stress has completely dissipated: the simplest case is that of one-dimensional consolidation, in which a condition of zero lateral.
- Consolidation can be defined as a dissipation process of excess pore pressure induced by applied load or change of boundary conditions. - It is a time dependent behavior of soil deformation.

Laboratory Testing; When a load is applied in a low permeability soil, it is initially carried by the water that exists in the porous of a saturated soil resulting in a rapid increase of pore water pressure.
whereas the process may last for many years or even decades in clay soils.

The compression and consolidation anisotropy of 11 soft soils were studied by conducting oedometer tests on sets of duplicate undisturbed specimens prepared in the vertical and horizontal directions from adjacent sections of carefully sampled borehole by: This chapter discusses the vertical and horizontal laboratory permeability measurements in clay soils.
The direct measurement of vertical kv and horizontal permeability, kh, of clay soils and the. Permeability and Consolidation of Normally Consolidated Soils.
This paper first presents a unique relationship between permeability and void ratio. This relationship is then used for deriving the governing differential equation of consolidation for normally consolidated soils where void ratio vs.
logarithm of effective stress can be approximated by a straight by: However, the use of low gradients extends the testing time to unacceptable limits. The flow pump test solves both these problems.
If the clay is very soft and normally consolidated, even the lowest gradients can cause significant consolidation. It may well be that indirect measurements, using inversion techniques, will be required for these cases.
This chapter discusses the vertical and horizontal laboratory permeability measurements in clay soils. The direct measurement of vertical k v and horizontal permeability, k h, of clay soils and the validity of Darcy's law in the materials may be of considerable importance in estimating pore water pressure dissipation, and settlement rates, few measurements with this as the specific purpose have been by: TABLEOFCONTENTS Page LISTOFTABLES v LISTOFFIGURES vi FOREWORD viii ABSTRACT ix I.

Pile groups could undergo consolidation settlement in clay soils. Consolidation settlement of pile groups is computed using the following simplified assumptions: 1. Assume the pile group to be a solid foundation with a depth of 2/3 the length of piles.
Effective stress at midpoint of the clay layer is used to compute settlement. not offer more advantages over the oedometer test as far as c v is concerned.
Direct permeability measurement. After c h is determined from consolidation test, k h can be calculated using Eq. On the other hand, k h can also be determined directly from the permeability test at the end of each consolidation stage in the Rowe cell test.
To achieve this, both a peripheral drain and. Laboratory measurements of the vertical and horizontal permeability of samples of Bothkennar clay have been made in controlled flow tests and values have been estimated from interpretation of consolidation tests.
The permeability anisotropy that has been observed can be linked with different clay facies that have been identified in parallel Cited by: Consolidation of soil introduction 1.
Consolidation is a process by which soils decrease in volume. According to Karl Terzaghi "consolidation is any process which involves decrease in water content of a saturated soil without replacement of water by air.” Reduction in volume takes place by expulsion of water under long term static loads.
