Tong Xiao-dong;School of Civil Engineering, Southeast University;
The paper expounds that the preconsolidation pressure and current overburden vertical pressure of soil should be the effective stresses according to the principle of effective stress of soil and the definition of over-consolidation ratio. Based on the consolidation theory, it points out that the over-consolidation ratio of the underconsolidated soil should be equal to 1, not less than 1.
