Precision of the Creep Coefficient and Secondary Consolidation of Water-Saturated Viscous Soil

  • S. G. BezvolevEmail author

Patterns of soil consolidation with significant filtration and viscous resistance to volumetric deformation are considered. Joint models were characterized, issues identified and practical calculations of the consolidation of water-saturated boggy soils were presented. The conceptual contradictions for the viscous-elastic-plastic model were analyzed using the Bingham nonlinear water-saturated body model of the KONSO program and the Plaxis Soft soil creep model. The method of the correct determination of creep and nonlinear viscosity parameters during the compression-consolidation testing was presented.
