Parkin (1978) suggested the velocity method based on the observation that the theoretical rate of consolidation and time factor plot on a log-log scale yields an initial slope of 1:2 up to 50% consolidation. A new method is proposed that is an improvement over ParkinĀ“s velocity method because it minimizes the problems encountered in using that method. The results obtained agree with the other methods in use.
