Abstract

The effects of an electro-osmotic treatment on a soft sensitive clay from Eastern Canada were examined based on the laboratory tests performed on undisturbed specimens. The interpretation of the tests focus on the non-homogeneity of the treatment, the influence of polarity reversal and strong induration which develops near the anode in addition to the consolidation.

A Study on Electro-Osmotic Consolidation of Soft Clays

St. Louis, Missouri

The effects of an electro-osmotic treatment on a soft sensitive clay from Eastern Canada were examined based on the laboratory tests performed on undisturbed specimens. The interpretation of the tests focus on the non-homogeneity of the treatment, the influence of polarity reversal and strong induration which develops near the anode in addition to the consolidation.
