I have the Following Task;

Use the Finite Difference Method to represent the one-dimensional comsolidation of a saturated clay sample contained within an Oedometer and hence confirm that the isochrone for a Time Factor (TV) of 0.3 is an accurate representation of the solution of terzaghi's one dimensional consolidation equation.

After days of research i am really struggling, as are my fellow students.

if anyone can advise a source of information or suggest an approach i would be extremely gratefull.

Many Thanks,

Warren
