The mechanical response of natural sedimentary clay is very different from the usual clay due to its highly-developed structure. When the structured soil is loaded, its structure varies accordingly, which results in the corresponding variation of physical and mechanical properties of soft soil. If the soil parameters obtained from the remolded soils are used directly in the structured soil, significant mistake may be caused. The secondary consolidation occurs at the beginning of primary consolidation and becomes predominant at the end of primary consolidation. Background
