Field And Theoretical Analysis Of Accelerated Consolidation Using Vertical Drains

2017 Zenodo  
Mumbai is the region consisting of soft compressible marine clay deposits. There are several construction problems on such soils and thus ground improvement is need to be carried out. Vertical drains is generally preferred technique as accelerated settlement is achieved during the construction phase itself if planned accordingly . The concept of vertical drains is based on the theory of three dimensional consolidation as described by Terzaghi (1943).
