Long, Dennis Vernon (1961) Mechanics of consolidation with reference to experimentally sedimented clays. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-05042006-130711
The problem of large strain consolidation in soils is investigated by analysis and experiment. A mathematical model is formulated to include the effects of large strains. Analytic and numerical solutions are discussed.
The design, fabrication and operation of apparatus to study consolidation and other phenomena in sedimented clays is described. Results of experiments on two types of clay are presented. Finally, the consolidation characteristics of one of these clays are shown to be in close agreement with a particular solution of the large strain consolidation equation.
