April 29th , 2008 Mark Bell, P.E. Project Manager AGC Engineering Cleveland, OH 44120 Subject: Report of Consolidation Test and Data Analysis Cleveland, Ohio Dear Mr. Bell: I have completed the Unconfined Compression Test Laboratory. The results are described below and will be used for further calculations. After performing all relevant calculations and recording all data, I found that the maximum value of strength is 281.425 psi

of deformation, which is described by properties such as the coefficient of consolidation and is used to determine the time required for given settlement to take place. The rate of consolidation depends on a soil property known as the coefficient of consolidation, Cv, which can be determined from a load increment of an odometer test. In this lab, we
