Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice
Oedometer tests with porewater pressure measurements indicate that the
Casagrande procedure leads to values of ep practically equal to those defined by
excess porewater pressure measurements, whereas the Taylor procedure may ...

Porous stones Sample 1.3.2 Oedometer test A standard oedometer apparatus (
see Figure l.1) consists of a circular metal ring containing a soil sample which is
usually 70mm in diameter and 20mm high. Porous discs are placed at the top

Soil Mechanics for Unsaturated Soils
The Sullivan and McClelland method is based on a ' 'constant volume"
oedometer test on an undisturbed sample initially subjected to the overburden
pressure. Once the swelling pressure has been reached, the sample is
D. G. Fredlund, Harianto Rahardjo, 1993
The test is popular because it is relatively simple to perform and because the
strain condition is approximately similar to one frequently encountered in actual
problems. The major experimental difficulty with the oedometer test is side friction

7.2 THE OEDOMETER TEST The characteristics of a soil during one-dimensional
consolidation or swelling can be determined by means of the oedometer test.
Figure 7.1 shows diagrammatically a cross-section through an oedometer.
The first apparatus developed to measure these parameters was the Casagrande
oedometer, which tests a small, thin sample by dead loading. Subsequently, the
hydraulic consolidation cell (Rowe cell), which uses a flexible hydraulic jack to ...

The best known and most popular procedure utilized for this is the oedometer test
. It has been reported that values of swelling pressure and collapse potential
were found to vary dramatically. This could be attributed to various factors such

The constant volume or swe1l pressure test procedure involves inundating the
sample in the oedometer while preventing the sample from swelling. The swell
pressure is reported as the maximum applied stress required to maintain
