Abstract

A high embankment was built on a soft clay disturbed due to an inadequate technique. Settlement analysis has been carried out to estimate coefficients of consolidation Cv, final settlements and average degrees of consolidation U. Laboratory and in situ tests have been performed to estimate C values as well. Piezometric measurements have also been made to estimate U values corrected with non linear oedometer test data. Times for settlement stabilization have been estimated with the available data.

Performance of an Embankment Built on a Soft Disturbed Clay

St. Louis, Missouri

A high embankment was built on a soft clay disturbed due to an inadequate technique. Settlement analysis has been carried out to estimate coefficients of consolidation Cv, final settlements and average degrees of consolidation U. Laboratory and in situ tests have been performed to estimate C values as well. Piezometric measurements have also been made to estimate U values corrected with non linear oedometer test data.
