Abstract
    The dimensional analysis technique was applied in order to determine possible relationships between the measured parameters in the STT and to identify possible inconsistencies in the measurements.

    The present dimensional analysis focuses only in the sedimentation and consolidation processes.

    Relationships between parameters could be used to identify inconsistencies for measured pore pressure, effective stresses and density values. Recommendations are suggested for sampling points and measuring methods.
