1 Consolidation of Clays N. Sivakugan Duration: 17 minutes
SIVA Copyright©2001 2 What is Consolidation? When a saturated clay is loaded externally, saturated clay GL the water is squeezed out of the clay over a long time (due to low permeability of the clay).
SIVA Copyright©2001 3 What is Consolidation? This leads to settlements occurring over a long time, which could be several years. time settlement
SIVA Copyright©2001 4 In granular soils… Granular soils are freely drained, and thus the settlement is instantaneous. time settlement
SIVA Copyright©2001 5 During consolidation… Due to a surcharge q applied at the GL, GL saturated clay q kPa A the stresses and pore pressures are increased at A. u ’..and, they vary with time.
SIVA Copyright©2001 6 During consolidation… remains the same (=q) during consolidation. GL saturated clay q kPa A u ’ u decreases (due to drainage) u ’ q transferring the load from water to the soil. while ’ increases,

SIVA Copyright©2001 11 Coefficient of volume compressibility ~ denoted by m v ~ is the volumetric strain in a clay element per unit increase in stress i.e., no units kPa or MPa kPa -1 or MPa -1
