Summary:This paper describes the use of large strain consolidation theory and centrifugal modelling to study the consolidation behavior of slurries. Laboratory testing of the slurry is needed to obtain two constitutive relationships of the material, namely, effective stress-void ratio and permeability-void ratio. Results of several tests on a Florida phosphatic waste clay are presented.—Modified book abstract.
