Unformatted text preview: d. Determine the preconsolidation pressure using Casagrandes method e. Determine the compression index (c c ) from the laboratory consolidation curve f. Determine the compression ratio (c c = c c = CR) from the laboratory consolidation curve g. Determine the recompression index (c r ) from the laboratory consolidation curve h. Determine the recompression ratio (c r = c r = RR) from the laboratory consolidation curve i. Determine the modulus of volume compressibility for loading (not unloading) compatible with z = 800 kPa; explain how this parameter is similar and yet different to the compression ratio j. Determine the constrained modulus of elasticity for loading (not unloading) compatible with z = 800 kPa...
