This report contains Appendices I through IX which consist of data obtained from soil tests. The cell pressure during K sub o consolidation was 620 kPa resulting in a vertical stress of 1240 kPa. The rebound was such that the excess vertical stress was removed and the cell pressure reduced by a factor of 3. This operation leads to an overconsolidation ratio of 4 when reference is made to the mean effective stress. For isotropic specimens consolidation and rebound were spherical in nature. The specimen was hydrostatically consolidated under 620 kPa and rebounded to 207 kPa.
