coefficient of compressibility
Compressibility is the aptitude of the soil to be deformed. It is expressed by means of a coefficient which is the ratio between a void ratio decrease from eo to e and an increase in effective stress. The value a v = e0-e)p represents the coefficient of compressibility for the range p0 to p0 + p.Units are usually cm2/kg . See also coefficient of volume compressibility.
