Description VERSAT-Consolidation provides finite element solutions of Terzaghi's consolidation equation in multi-layer column. This calculation is a continuation of VERSAT-Settlement, which computes stresses in soils using the Boussinesq's equation for multi-zones of loading and calculates consolidation induced settlement of clayey soils. Each soil layer can have its own unique coefficient of consolidation (Cv), and the drainage conditions at the bottom of each layer are specified while the top (zero depth) of the column is assumed to be free drained. In the analysis the pore water pressure at t=0 is assumed to be the same as the incremental stresses carried over from VERSAT-Settlement. The Terzaghi 1D consolidation equation is solved using the finite element method. The results of analysis include settlements of each soil layer and sublayer for up to 4 specific points of time, as well as a complete curve of settlement versus time for up to 4 specific locations (sublayer) in the soil column. The finite element analysis is carried out on the web server. The program does not require a computer to run; instead it only requires an Internet browser to setup input and display results.
