There are large areas of soft clay distributed in coastal areas of China, which are often used as raw materials for hydraulic fill engineering in recent years, and its sedimentation characteristics have attracted more and more attention. In this paper, the influence of initial water content on the sedimentation characteristics of soft clay is studied through the experiment. The results show that: (1) the sedimentation process of soft clay can be divided into two stages: sedimentation stage and self weight consolidation stage. The sedimentation stage has a short time, and the soil property index tends to be stable quickly; the self weight consolidation stage is very slow, and the soil property index almost has no change; (2) the larger the initial water content of soft clay, the greater the sedimentation rate and the faster the sedimentation; (3) the higher the initial water content, the faster the sedimentation, the higher the water content and the void ratio, the smaller the density.
