"The Terzaghi theory of consolidation and the assumption of his theory, pore pressure and effective stress, secondary compression and rheology were all reviewed and discussed. Eight compacted unsaturated samples made from Clarksville silty clay (CL) under different compaction efforts and moisture contents were subjected to consolidation load increments. Each load increment was maintained for 24 hours. An extra compacted sample was loaded for one month to investigate secondary compression.
From e-p curves, five settlement vs. compacted embankment height curves were derived for different compaction effort and moisture contents. These curves may be of practical use, when checked by field measurements and observations"--Abstract, page ii.
