Consolidation is a phenomenon related to the dissipation of excess pore pressure when a soil is loaded. The loads, initially applied to the surface of the soil, will be finally supported by the soil skeleton, as time passes. In this work it is designed a network model for the numerical simulation of consolidation in radial coordinates, in a standard circuit simulation code. The proposed model includes the network of the volume element as well as the possibility of simulating soils with heterogeneous properties (multi-layered soils).
