“SO-Consolidation” is aimed at the evaluation of one-dimensional consolidation tests. Individual tabs are assigned for project information (including basic information, borings and samples) and tests. In addition to test data and corresponding calculations, software outputs are presented in both landscape and portrait formats.
In order to obtain coefficient of consolidation and secondary compression index, each loading step can be analyzed by two methods, logarithm and square root of time.
Also, the Casagrande and the simplified methods can be employed for the determination of final results including preconsolidation stress and compression and swelling indices.
Each interpretation method is accompanied by a variety of capabilities and in addition to being automatic, can be modified by the user.
Note that consolidation tests could randomly be generated (including dial-time readings of each loading step) based on user-defined criteria.
