Compressibility And Consolidation

COEFFICIENT OF COMPRESSIBILITY (av)
Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
e1 = Void Ratio at effective stress Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
e2 = Void ratio at effective stress  Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev

 Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
ΔV = Change in volume in m3, or cm3.
V0 = Initial volume in m3 or cm3.
ΔH = Change in depth in ‘m’ or ‘cm’.
H0 = original depth in ‘m’ or ‘cm’.
Remember: Consolidation settlement is a function of effective stress and not the function of total stress.

(a)

Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev

(b) CC = 0.009 (WL- 10) For undisturbed clays of low to medium senstivity WL = liquid limit expressed in percent.

(c) CC = 0.007 ( WL- 7) For remoulded soil of low sensitivity

(d) CC = 0.40 (e0- 0.25) For undisturbed soil of medium sensitivity e0 = Initial void ratio

(e) For remoulded soil of low sensitivity.
     CC =1.15(e0- 0.35) 

(f) C =0.115 w where, w = Water content

OVER CONSOLIDATION RATIO
 Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
O.C.R >1
For over consolidated soil.
O.C.R = 1
For normally consolidated soil.
O.C.R < 1
For under consolidated clay

DIFFERENTIAL EQUATION OF 1-D CONSOLIDATION

 Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev

where,
u = Excess pore pressure,
Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev = Rate of change of pore pressure
CV = Coefficient of consolidation
Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev     = Rate of change of pore pressure with depth.


COEFFICIENT OF VOLUME COMPRESSIBILITY:

 Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
where, e0 = Initial void ratio
mv = Coefficient of volume compressibility

COMPRESSION MODULUS:
 Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev

where, Ec = Compression modulus.

DEGREE OF CONSOLIDATION
 (i)

Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev 

where, % U = % degree of consolidation.  
U = Excess pore pressure at any stage.
Ui = Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev = Initial excess pore pressureat
At t = 0, U = u1 ⇒ %u= 0%
at t = ∞ , u = 0 ⇒ %u =100%
(ii)

 Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
where, ef = Void ratio at 100% consolidation
i.e., of t =∞
e = Void ratio at time ‘t’
e0= Initial void ratio i.e, at t = 0

(iii) 
Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev

where, ΔH = Final total settlement at the end of completion of primary consolidation i.e., at t =∞
Δh = Settlement occurred at any time ‘t’.

TIME FACTOR

Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev

where, Tv  = Time factor
CV = Coeff. of consolidation in cm2/sec.
d  = Length of drainage path
t  = Time in ‘sec’
d= Ho/2 For 2-way drainage d =H0 For one-way drainage.
where, H0 = Depth of soil sample.

(i)
 Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev, if u ≤ 60% T50 = 0.196 

(ii) Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev , if u > 60%

METHOD TO FIND 'Cv
(i) Square Root of Time Fitting method
Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev 
where,T90 = Time factor at 90% consolidation
t90 = Time at 90% consolidation
d   = Length of drainage path.

(ii) Logarithm of Time Fitting method
 Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
where,T50 = Time factor of 50% consolidation
t50 = Time of 50% consolidation
Remember: Square root of  time fitting method is better for soil having higher secondary consolidation.

COMPRESSION RATIO:
(i) Initial compression Ratio
 Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev

where, Ri = Initial reading of dial gauge.
R0 = Reading of dial gauge at 0% consolidation
Rf = Final reading of dial gauge after secondary consolidation.

(ii) Primary Consolidation Ratio

 Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
where, R100 = Reading of dial gauge at 100% primary consolidation.

(iii) Secondary Consolidation Ratio
Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev 

TOTAL SETTLEMENT
S = Si + SP+Ss
where Si = Initial settlement, Sp=Primary Settlement Ss = Secondary settlement
(i) Initial Settlement
Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev 

For cohesionless soil.
where,
Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
where, Cr = Static one resistance in kN/m2
H0 = Depth of soil sample
 Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev
for cohesive soil.
where, It = Shape factor or influence factor, A = Area.
Remember: For square footing , A = B2 and It = 1
 Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev-for strip footing
(ii) Primary Settlement
Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev

sc1 = Settlement for over consolidated stage

Compressibility And Consolidation Civil Engineering (CE) Notes | EduRev

where, H0 ~ H100
H100 = Thickness of soil after 100% primary consolidation.
e100 = Void ratio after 100% primary consolidation.
t2  = Average time after t1 in which secondary consolidation is calculated.
