Consolidation Characteristics Determination for Phosphatic Clays. Volume 3: Results of Seepage – Induced Consolidation Tests of Phosphatic Clays

02-084-104-v3Final

Introduction

This report contains results of the seepage induced consolidation tests on phosphatic clay samples as well as results of verification tests performed on the same material. The testing program was executed as a part of a research project sponsored by FIPR in which the seepage induced consolidation testing and analysis procedures have been implemented for the determination of consolidation characteristics of phosphatic clays.

A total of five samples were tested in the program with multiple seepage induced consolidation and verification tests performed on each sample.
