The paper deals with the formulation and solution of the consolidation problem for weak water-saturated soil bases by using exponential functions to describe the initial pore water pressure with zero boundary conditions on the surface of the base and at infinity. The solution of this problem was obtained in closed form by the source function method. Expressions are given for the pore water pressure and degree of consolidation, as well as an example of such calculation.
