This paper describes a comprehensive set of experimental data concerning the one-dimensional, time-dependent behaviour of organic clays and peats. The experimental analyses concerned three different peaty soils (either undisturbed or remoulded) with fairly different index properties (the organic content ranged between 20% and 70%) that were submitted to various kinds of one-dimensional consolidation tests. The experimental data confirm that peats and organic clays have many aspects of their delayed behaviour in common. The main outcome of this work is a good-quality, comprehensive and meaningful set of data for use in developing and calibrating constitutive models for simulating the delayed response of soils, with an emphasis on organic clays and peats.

Abstract

This paper describes a comprehensive set of experimental data concerning the one-dimensional, time-dependent behaviour of organic clays and peats. The experimental analyses concerned three different peaty soils (either undisturbed or remoulded) with fairly different index properties (the organic content ranged between 20% and 70%) that were submitted to various kinds of one-dimensional consolidation tests. The experimental data confirm that peats and organic clays have many aspects of their delayed behaviour in common. The main outcome of this work is a good-quality, comprehensive and meaningful set of data for use in developing and calibrating constitutive models for simulating the delayed response of soils, with an emphasis on organic clays and peats.
