The Influence of the Provisions for Boundary Drainage on Strength and Consolidation Characteristics of Soils Measured in the Triaxial Apparatus


The coefficient of consolidation of a soil measured in the triaxial test and the degree of dissipation of pore pressure after a given time interval in a drained test depend on the relative permeabilities and dimensions of the specimen and of the drainage elements in contact with it.
