Summary:
"This book describes the compression behavior of ultra-soft soil upon additional load application. Various types of laboratory compression tests suitable for this type of soil are discussed, such as tests using small- and large-scale consolidometers, hydraulic Rowe cells under different drainage conditions, constant rate of loading and constant rate of strain tests. An equation for predicting settlement of  Read more...

Abstract:

The formation of an alluvial clay deposit normally goes through sedimentation and consolidation. This book describes the compression behavior of ultra-soft soil upon additional load application. It  Read more...

Various types of laboratory compression tests suitable for this type of soil are discussed, such as tests using small- and large-scale consolidometers, hydraulic Rowe cells under different drainage conditions, constant rate of loading and constant rate of strain tests. An equation for predicting settlement of ultra-soft soil in both the slurry and soil stages is elaborated upon. These proposed methods of characterization or analyses - which are validated against published data, laboratory measurements and a case study - serve as useful tools for designing and constructing embankments and for carrying out land reclamation on ultra-soft soil."--BOOK JACKET." ;
