This paper gives a brief outline of the theory of consolidation followed by a descriptionption of the existing methods of calculating the coefficient of consolidation from experimental results, with a discussion of the relative merits of these methods. A simplification of one of the methods follows as well as a new numerical method evolved by the Author. Finally, a worked example is given to illustrate the various methods of making the calculation.
