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...

This research aims to describe how rainfall can cause changes in the piezometric pore pressure and soil matric suction in a densely instrumented slope by the South BR-101 (Brazilian Numbered Highway), in the area of Morro do Boi, in the State of Santa Catarina, South Region of Brazil. The slope presented a history of instability movements instigated by intense r...

This article compares and analyses the behaviour of three test embankments. The soil foundation consisted of normally consolidated clay overlain by a thick sand surface layer. The embankments were rapidly constructed until failure, which occurred after approximately 50 days. Two of the embankments were reinforced, one including prefabricated vertical drains (...
