Consolidation Apparatus - Single Gang Model
Consolidation test is uni-dimensional test
considered extremely important in soil mechanics. Sample taken from
adjacent areas of a single site show differential settlement even when
tested using same techniques. Soil of similar strength may show varying
consolidation. Samples are very carefully prepared and vertical
settlement of the specimen in saturated or drained conditions carefully
recorded when known load is applied.
