Description
Large-strain consolidation theory is widely used for the management of dredged disposal sites. The theory is universally accepted to deal with this problem, though the determination of the material properties is not yet standardised. Decisions made on this level can lead to the prediction of a totally different consolidation history. This paper describes the results of a prediction exercise, performed using a batch of sediment from the river Schelde (Antwerpen, Belgium). Numerical modellers were given the data of four calibration experiments and were then asked to predict another experiment. Settling column experiments (0·2–0·6 m in height) with density and pore pressure measurements provided the basis for the calibration data. The prediction demonstrated the significance of the soil compressibility at low effective stresses, when time-dependent behaviour is observed.
