Undrained shear strength from cone penetration tests

T. D. Stark, J. E. Juhrend

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Results of unconsolidated-undrained triaxial tests, field vane shear tests and cone penetration tests have been used to develop correlations between undrained shear strength and cone resistence for a soft to medium alluvial clay in the Lopez Canyon area of San Diego. The difference in the measured values of shear strength is most likely due to soil anisotropy and/or differences between triaxial and vane shear tests. -from Authors
