The aim of this paper is to draw attention to experimental evidence which may contribute to the understanding of the viscous behaviour of soft soils and, above all, present the equation for primary one-dimensional consolidation including the soil viscous resistance and the compressibility of water, with its analytical solution. Initially, a generic equation is p...

Routine in-situ and laboratory investigations carried out for the basic design failed to provide reliable values for compressibility and consolidation parameters of soft clay layers at the site of a terminal to be built in Santos. A pilot embankment was designed and built divided in three equal areas, two with wick drains in a square mesh at spacings of 1.2 m ...
