Description: Contract report
Foreword: The work described in this report was performed under Contract No. DA-22-079-CIVENG-62 47, "Shear Properties of Undisturbed Weak Clays," between the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station and the University of California. The general objective of the research, which was begun in February, 1962, is to investigate the influence of pore-water pressures on the strength characteristics of undisturbed weak clays. Work on this project is conducted under the supervision of Professor H. Bolton Seed, Professor of Civil Engineering, and Clarence K. Chan, Associate Research Engineer. The project is administered by the Office of Research Services of the College of Engineering. The phase of the investigation described in this report was conducted by J. M. Duncan, Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering and R. G. Campanella, formerly Assistant Specialist. The report was prepared by J. M. Duncan and R. G. Campanella. This is the fourth report of investigations performed under this contract. The previous reports were "The Effects of Sampling and Disturbance on the Shear Strength of Soft Clays," Report No. TE-64-1, February, 1964; "The Effect of Anisotropy and Reorientation of Principal Stresses on the Shear Strength of Saturated Clay," Report No. TE-65-3, November, 1965; and "Errors in Strength Tests and Recommended Corrections," Report No. TE-65-4, November, 1965.
