Developing Geotechnical Engineering Software فارسی

Overall

“SO-Consolidation” is aimed at the evaluation of one-dimensional consolidation tests. Individual tabs are assigned for project information (including basic information, borings and samples) and tests. In addition to test data and corresponding calculations, software outputs are presented in both landscape and portrait formats.

In order to obtain coefficient of consolidation and secondary compression index, each loading step can be analyzed by two methods, logarithm and square root of time. Also, the Casagrande and the simplified methods can be employed for the determination of final results including preconsolidation stress and compression and swelling indices. Each interpretation method is accompanied by a variety of capabilities and in addition to being automatic, can be modified by the user.

Note that consolidation tests could randomly be generated (including dial-time readings of each loading step) based on user-defined criteria.

Features

General features

-

User is informed about the common ranges regarding input parameters.

-

Separate outputs are considered regarding test summary and the loading steps.

-

Software outputs are exported in both landscape and portrait formats.

-

Test data and corresponding calculations are presented in a separate format.

-

Blank laboratory data sheets may be used for test data input.

-

Saving files with a minimal size.

Consolidation test calculations

-

Implemented evaluation methods are beyond ASTM D2435.

-

Interpretation methods are automatically applied and can be modified by the user.

-

Test data can be edited using either graphs or input tables.

• Loading steps

-

Logarithm and square root of time methods are implemented.

-

Sensitivity analysis can be performed on the average degree of consolidation, leading to much better and more precise determination of the coefficient of consolidation.

-

Consolidation tests could randomly be generated based on user-defined criteria including:
● Settlement percentage regarding each of the steps (elastic, primary consolidation and secondary consolidation)
● Dial reading times

• Whole test

-

The Casagrande and the simplified methods are employed.

-

Consolidation tests could randomly be generated based on user-defined criteria including:
● Loading schedule and corresponding apparatus calibration
● Initial dial reading and its trend (increase or decrease)
● Preconsolidation stress and compression and swelling indices
