Dimensional Reduction Applied to Specific Problems of Consolidation
This paper explores various aspects of consolidation of clay type soils. Formulation is provided for two specific problems. First, the isotropic consolidation with reference to the CAM clay model is investigated to reconcile the mutual dependency of individual state variables and provide certain modification to the existing models in order to obtain better agreement with experiments. Next, the improved model is implemented in the study of consolidation of the soil body drained by a system of concentric cylindrical drains. Several numerical examples are presented to support theoretical formulation.
