    Abstract

    The procedures utilized and results obtained from a newly designed floating wall consolidation device are compared with those obtained from a modified triaxial insert, traditional fixed wall, back-pressure saturated, constant-rate-of-strain consolidation device that incorporated bender elements (BP–CRS–BE). Specifically, the need for additional measurements within the floating wall consolidation device including machine deflection and tip-to-tip measurements are highlighted and discussed. The procedures that were utilized to collect and reduce the measured shear wave and compression wave data, as collected using the newly designed floating wall consolidation device, are also questioned.
