Soil stiffness measured in oedometer tests

The manner in which the results of oedometer tests are normally presented and used for determining stiffness parameters is examined. The basis for using a logarithmic scale for pressure is examined and shown to be of limited relevance to many soils. It is suggested that a linear pressure scale often gives a much improved picture of soil stiffness, and that oedometer test results should always be presented using both log and linear scales.
