hello everyone, if an earth dam is to be constructed. The soil on the site is clay. The initial water level is at the ground surface. During the construction, the water level has to be lowered in a short time, so that construction can proceed. This condition is commonly known as "sudden drawdown". What type of triaxial tests would you recommend to carry out, and why?
