Abstract

Laboratory techniques and procedures are described which can be used in conjunction with a slurry consolidometer apparatus to produce high quality soil samples that possess a known stress history and are homogeneous in their physical and chemical properties. Specimens trimmed from such samples can then be used with confidence in tests designed to investigate various engineering properties of cohesive soils. The procedures employed to produce slurries at Northwestern University are explained and the characteristics of a large series of consolidated blocks described.
