Abstract

"This paper reports the results of an investigation conducted to establish the effect of structure on the consolidation characteristics of a clay soil. Soil structure was caused to form in the soil by the addition of electrolytes to flocculate and disperse the clay fraction of the soil.


Consolidation tests were performed on specimens of the treated soil prepared at moisture contents well above the liquid limit of the soil. The consolidation data from these tests are evaluated and comparisons are made to relate the influence of structure to the consolidation characteristics of the treated soil.


The influence of structure on the consolidation characteristics of cohesive soil is found to be significant and suggestions for further research are made"--Abstract, page ii.
