results, the bulk modulus was calculated: M = 1662, 9KPa. Based on consolidation coefficient equation (Eq.3) , using Cassagrande ( Eq.4 , Fig.5 ) and Taylor (Eq. 6, Fig. 7 ) methods, hydraulic conductivities were calculated: t 50 =193,5min; = 524,6min. The calculated k values are 1.189 × l0 -8 m/s and 1.1898×l0 -8 m/s for Cassagrande and Taylor methods respectively. Figure 6 Cassagrande estimation of Cv.

The process of sedimentation and subsequent gravity compression of kaolin and water suspensions was investigated experimentally. 45 batch tests were carried out and the time dependence of the height of the suspension column was measured. The one-dimensional equations of Darcian mechanics of two-phase porous media are applied to formulate the studied process mathematically. A very natural assumption makes it possible to find a solution of the forward problem for a starting period of the process. Analysis of the theoretical function and the experimental data gives hydraulic conductivity as a function of the suspension concentration. The obtained results are presented and discussed.
