LONG-TERM DEFORMATION IN CLAY
The first part of this investigation consisted of an analysis of the stress-strain time properties of clay soils. The formulation of stress-strain-time behavior was used to calculate the deformations of a cut and an embankment of the Independence Interchange near Cleveland. The calculated deformations were compared with the measured deformations and general agreement was observed. During construction, a slide occurred in a section of the embankment. A seperate part of the investigation studied the causes of the slide. The shear strength was measured and a stability analysis was made.
