Cerro Arrieta, Carlos Alberto | 2002
Generally when there appears a public or private initiative to realize a civil work, there is established a timetable of activities where initially a detailed soils study needs from itself the achievement of several
preliminary studies, inside which it appears in particular. This soils study, it always subdivides in several aspects, inside which the calculation of the establishments turns out to be of big importance
from the same moment of beginning of works until many years after finished. For the determination of the establishments it becomes necessary to obtain parameters as the index of compressibility, which
decides from a consolidation essay. It is necessary to emphasize that this is a long and costly essay. The man across the history, has looked for the way of minimizing the expense of the time and of the money, and the processes ingenieriles have not been the exception.
The man in its emulation, has penetrated in investigations that allow him to obtain the parameters of calculation, of an easy and rapid way, leading it to postulating mathematical models where two or more
variables are correlated.
