The paper has been submitted to the American Society of Civil Engineers for consideration for publication in its Journal of the Soil Mechanics and Foundations Division. This work was accomplished as a part of the mobility investigational program of the Waterways Experiment Station. This program is sponsored by the U.S.. Army Materiel Command through its representative, Mr. R. R. Philippe. This research program is under the immediate direction of the following Waterways Experiment Station staff engineers: Mr. W. J. Turnbull, Technical Assistant for Soils and Environmental Engineering; Mr. W. G. Shockley, Chief of the Mobility and Environmental Division; Mr. S. J. Knight ., Chief of the Army Mobility Research Branch; and Mr. D .R. Freitag, Chief of the Mobility Section. Col. Alex G. Sutton, Jr., is Director of the Waterways Experiment Station., and Mr. J. B.
