SKAA-EDEBY TEST FIELD - FURTHER STUDIES ON CONSOLIDATION OF CLAY AND EFFECTS OF SAND DRAINS.

THIS PUBLICATION INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING PAPERS: (1) HOLTZ,R & LINDSKOG,G. SOIL MOVEMENTS BELOW A TEST EMBANKMENT. (2) HOLTZ,R & BROMS,B; LONG-TERM LOADING TESTS AT SKAA-EDEBY, SWEDEN. (3) HOLTZ,R & HOLM,G; EXCAVATION AND SAMPLING AROUND SOME SAND DRAINS AT SKAA-EDEBY, SWEDEN. THESE PAPERS CONCERN TESTS AND INVESTIGATIONS PERFORMED AT THE SKAA-EDEBY TEST FIELD, WEST OF STOCKHOLM. THE TEST FIELD WAS CONSTRUCTED IN 1957 BY THE SWEDISH GEOTECHNICAL INSTITUTE. THE SOILS ARE MEDIUM SENSITIVE POST-GLACIAL AND GLACIAL VARVED CLAYS, WHICH ARE SOFT AND NORMALLY CONSOLIDATED. PAPER (1) PRESENTS SETTLEMENT AND PORE PRESSURE RECORDS FROM AN EMBANKMENT LOADING TEST ALONG WITH A RECORD OF THE SUBSTANTIAL HORIZONTAL MOVEMENTS. IN PAPER (2) A SUMMARY OF 14 YEARS OF SETTLEMENT AND PORE PRESSURE OBSERVATIONS FROM THE FULL- SCALE LOADING TESTS AT SKAA-EDEBY IS PRESENTED AND ANALYZED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE SPECIALITY CONFERENCE ON PERFORMANCE OF EARTH AND EARTH- SUPPORTED STRUCTURES, JUNE 1972, AT PURDUE UNIVERSITY, USA. PAPER (3) IS A STUDY OF THE EFFECTS OF DISTURBANCE DURING THE DRIVING OF SAND DRAINS AND SOME OF THE CHANGES IN THE CLAY THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE AFTER ALMOST 15 YEARS OF CONSOLIDATION. THESE PAPERS ARE REPRINTS FROM: (1-2) PROC. SPECIALTY CONF. ON PERFORMANCE OF EARTH AND EARTH-SUPPORTED STRUCTURES, PURDUE UNIVERSITY 1972, VOL. 1:1 AND VOL.3. (3) 6TH NORDIC GEOTECHNICAL MEETING, TRONDHEIM 1972.
