terzaghi spring analogy and mechanics of consolidation


When heavy buildings or structures are built on the ground, they can make the ground compress a little over time due to their weight. This compression of soil, caused by factors like the weight of the building, is known as Settlement of soil. It has been described in detail in our previous post. &n

When we press down on a soft pillow that we use to rest our head on, it compresses and goes down a bit. Similarly, when heavy buildings or structures are built on the ground, they can make the ground compress or sink down a little over time due to their weight. This sinking down or compression of so

We make the soil base stable and strong Before constructing any structure on it. It is done by increasing soil’s density by decreasing the volume of air voids in it and the process of doing so is called Compaction. Compaction is measured using Dry Density or Dry Unit weight of Soil. Higher th

Before constructing any structure on the soil, we make the base stable and strong so that it does not settle in large amounts with time. This process of making the soil base solid before the construction of structure is called Compaction.   Compaction is usually done with heavy machinery and

Imagine we want to build a house. When we begin laying the foundation, it's natural for the soil below to undergo some initial settlement. However, it is essential that this settlement remains within acceptable limits and doesn't lead to future problems.   That's why, before co

Soil itself is used as a construction material while constructing engineering structures such as roads, earth dams, landfills etc. It is also used in the foundation of buildings.   But as we know soil is made up of small particles and they have some amount of empty space between them which

A soil mass is composed of small solid particles which we call the soil grains. These soil grains when depositing in a soil mass arranges themselves in a way that some amount of empty space is enclosed between them. We call these spaces voids. Water can flow though these voids.   The proper
