    The term consolidation describes the process by which a soil mass decreases in volume in response to either natural or man-made loadings. Natural loadings that induce consolidation result from geological processes such as sedimentation. Man-induced consolidation is a result of surface loadings associated with the construction of buildings or soil embankments and of .   In case of coarse grained soils like sands and gravels, the removal of this pore water is easy since water freely moves from one region to another within these soil types. However, in case of fine grained soils like silty or clayey soils, .

Compressibility A greater compressibility leads to a greater decrease in the void space of the soil for a particular stress change.

This means that a greater volume of water must be expelled from the soil and this will require a longer time.

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.

Consolidation of soil is mainly used for clayey soil. 5: Compaction is intentionally done to produce a high Consolidation of soils book weight of soil and consequently improve other soil properties. Consolidation is a natural process where soil below the building and other structure compacted by the transferred load to the soil through the provided foundation system.

Primary compression and secondary compression of saturated soils are consistent with the Terzaghi effective stress principle. Both primary compression and secondary compression and associated settlement and increase in undrained shear strength result from the rearrangement of soil particles to more compact packing, assisted by soil particle deformation, soil particle.

Overconsolidation ratio = pc ′/ p0 ′ When the glacier is melted, the stress on soil is relieved. Hence pc ′ > p0 ′ Design Example Find the overconsolidation ratio of the clay layer at the mid point (Figure ). The maximum stress that the soil was subjected to in the past is kN/m 2.

The rate of settlement of a saturated soil is expressed by the coefficient of consolidation (c v). The rate of settlement of a soil, and hence the value of c v, is governed by two factors: the amount of water to be squeezed out of the soil; and the rate at which that water can flow out.

Consolidation is a time-related process of increasing the density of a saturated soil by draining some of the water out of the voids. Consolidation is generally related to finegrained soils such as silts and clays. Coarse-grained soils (sands and gravels) also undergo consolidation but at a much faster rate due to their high permeability.

The most common consolidation process for soft soil requires the following elements to be present: • A surcharge load, typically consisting of fill material, placed on the design surcharge load, together with the platform fill, exerts pressures on the underlying soft soil and creates development of excess pore water pressures that are slow to dissipate due to the low.

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.

However, when structured and collapsible soils are taken into account, the standard consolidation theory ultimately requires complementary considerations to correctly predict a soil’s behavior. In particular, indirect determination of permeability by means of the consolidation coefficient, c v, tends to highly underestimate the real.The one-dimensional consolidation equation, Eq.

(), given by Terzaghi is a partial differential equation of second order. Its solution can be obtained by Fourier series. It is evident from the equation that the excess pore water pressure (u) is a function of depth (z) and time (t). It may be represented by the following equation –.
