Abstract or Summary
  • Calcareous sediments containing a large percentage of foraminiferal microskeletal tests were taken from sites in the Panama Basin and subjected to an investigation to determine the consolidation characteristics of this type of soil. The consolidation-stress curves and the time rate of consolidation curves in particular were investigated in this study. The stress-volume characteristics during consolidation were found to vary according to the amount of particle crushing. Theoretical relationships were established between the compression index and void ratio or percentage of uncrushed tests. The validity of the theoretical approach was established by performing a laboratory investigation consisting of five consolidation tests microscopic examinations and grain size analyses. The results of the laboratory investigation conformed to the theoretical interpretation of the relationship of compression index and void ratio. The five e-log p consolidation curves were all concave downward showing the effects of crushing of foram particles. Further, the time rate of consolidation curves for these sediments were linear and may also be attributed to grain crushing.
