Should it be important to estimate the rate of settlement, either to determine the post-construction settlement or because stage construction may be necessary, then the oedometer tests on small specimens are unlikely to yield CHAPTER I PLANNING AND CONCEPTUAL DESIGN satisfactory predictions. The undisturbed samples should be closely examined for fabric, for example laminations of silt or fine sand, which would suggest that the permeability of the mass in situ may well be much greater than that reflected by the small oedometer tests.
