Coefficient of Consolidation
This test method covers the determination of the rate and magnitude of consolidation of soil when it is restrained laterally and drained axially and subjected to controlled-strain loading. Information concerning rate and magnitude of consolidation settlement of soil is essential in the design of earth and earth-supported structures. The results of this method may be used to analyze or estimate one-dimensional consolidation settlements and rates.
