Construction Under Special Soil Conditions


1. The coefficients of thawing A obtained from the plate and compression tests are not correlated.

2. The coefficients of compressibilityap obtained from the plate tests significantly exceed the values ofac obtained from the compression tests. This must be taken into account in the revision of the GOST Norms for these tests.
