The coefficient of consolidation (Cv) signifies the rate at which a saturated clay undergoes 1-dimensional consolidation when subjected to an increase in pres- sure. Measured in cm2/s, C~ is a function of hydraulic conductivity, k (crn/s), coefficient of volume change, mv (cm2/kg), and unit weight of pore fluid, ~w (kg/cm3), and is expressed as:
