50 S r = w.G s /(v – 1) (main text Equation 1.10) or S r = 0.4514 × 2.61 ÷ 1.190 = 99% The total sample volume V t at any stage of the test is equal to the sample area A multiplied by the current sample height h, V t = A.h. Also, the total volume is equal to the volume of voids V v + the volume of soil grains (solids) V s , V t = V s + V v = V s (1+V v /V s ) = V s .(1 + e) = V s .v Hence V t = V s .v = A.h, or v h A V cons t s == tan The numerical value of the constant is equal to the specific volume divided by the sample
