Terzaghi’s Theory

By using the Terzaghi’s theory the rate of consolidation can be determined. The assumptions are:

• The compression and flow are 1-D only (in the vertical direction only)

• The soil is homogeneous

• The soil is completely saturated

• Dercy’s law is valid

• Both water inside the pore and soil grains are incompressible

• Strains are small

• Void ratio decreases with the increase in applied stress. Hence change in void ratio, de = -av $d\bar \sigma$ , where av is the coefficient of compressibility.
