The aim of this paper is to define a guideline for an objective interpretation of oedometer tests on Yoldia clay. The approach followed consists in a first analysis where the separation of strains is applied to the consolidation curves. During this phase, primary consolidation strains are filtered from creep by using Brinch-Hansen, Taylor and ANACONDA method. The second phase of the interpretation aims to determine the preconsolidation stress according to three different theories (Akai, Janbu and Casagrande - Terzaghi). The preconsolidation stress values, as well as the consolidation curves, are slightly influenced by the separation of strains method applied, while using different preconsolidation stress theories deeply affects the final results.
