Of all the various tests performed on soils, the most time consuming one is the laboratory test for consolidation. Essentially this test consists of determining the time-compression relation under constant loading of a laterally confined soil mass. Ideally, a continuous record of the relation would be desirable. Practically, sufficient separate readings are taken so that a reasonably smooth time-compression curve can be drawn.
