Part I of this paper descriptionbes a method for predicting the initial compression of a soil. This prediction does not depend upon the assumption of a linear e-p curve. A theory is also developed for the prediction of the aerodynamic and hydrodynamic time-settlement curve. The solution of the corresponding differential equations by numerical, mathematical and analog methods is discussed in Part II. The theories are applied to particular examples, and certain experimental evidence is also given.
