Abstract

The results of an extensive laboratory study on fibrous Middleton peat are presented. The biodegradation of some peat specimens during secondary compression was responsible for Cα increasing with time in the compression range where Cc decreases with increasing effective stress. Additional oedometer tests were performed to further investigate this possibility. Pore pressure measurements were taken at the base of the specimen.
