Prof. M. Santagata CE 383 SLIDE 1 PART VI -A CONSOLIDATION: 1D COMPRESSION BEHAVIOR OF SOILS AND FINAL SETTLEMENT CALCULATION ± INTRODUCTION ± 1D CONSOLIDATION TEST ± COMPRESSION CURVE (e – log σ v ) ± PRECONSOLIDATION STRESS ( σ p ) ± NC AND OC CLAYS ± COMPRESSIBILITY PARAMETERS ± CALCULATION OF FINAL CONSOLIDATION SETTLEMENT Prof. M. Santagata CE 383 SLIDE 2 ± INTRODUCTION CONSOLIDATION Settlement = IMMEDIATE+ PRIMARY CONSOLIDATION + SECONDARY SANDS Elastic Deformation Creep CLAYS STRESS INCREASE CAUSED BY APPLICATION OF LOADS COMPRESSION OF SOIL LAYERS Generated by deformation of soil particles, relocation of soil particles, expulsion of water Time dependent Volume change due to expulsion of water
