Abstract:

THE AUTHOR DRAWS ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT DRAINED DIRECT SHEAR TESTS BY NUMEROUS WORKERS ON NATURAL SOILS, PURE MINERALS AND MINERAL MIXTURES HAVE SHOWN THAT RESIDUAL SHEAR STRENGTH IS PRIMARILY DEPENDENT ON MINERAL COMPOSITION AND SYSTEM CHEMISTRY. THESE NUMERALOGICAL FACTORS AFFECT ATTERBERG INDEX PARAMETERS. IT DOES NOT SEEM SURPRISING THAT STRENGTH AND PLASTICITY CAN BE CORRELATED. /TRRL/
