Calculation of Consolidation Coefficient and Percent Consolidation from Measured Pore Water Pressure of Soft Clay
Consolidation coefficient and percent consolidation of soft clay were calculated according to the measured pore water pressure of a project in Pudong Shanghai. Calculated coefficient of consolidation was one magnitude larger than the experimental one. This was in conformity with the actual consolidation process of dynamically-consolidated soft soil.
