Regression analysis and factor analysis are applied to examine and evaluate data from more than 700 consolidation tests on a large variety of undisturbed soils from different parts of the world. The variations in the different soil properties are assessed in terms of the calculated statistical parameters of each property, and it is found that most of the variations can be explained in terms of either the normal or lognormal distributions. The modified Janbu equation, in which the coefficients are considered to be linear functions of several normalized soil properties, is found to satisfactorily explain the dependence of constrained modulus on stress level, and regression techniques are applied to deduce specifici relationships.
