DISCUSSION OF SHEAR STRENGTH DETERMINATION OF SOFT CLAYEY SOIL BY FIELD LABORATORY METHODS

In reply to the discusser, the author observes that the average failure strain differed between the foil specimens and push tube specimens with depth. At the shallow depths, the failure strain of the foil specimens was only slightly less than the push-tube specimens. However, the failure strain for the foil specimens continued to be less with depth until it became about 50 percent of the value obtained from the push-tube specimens at the greatest depth sampled. The effective stresses were not increased by an increase in confining pressure.
