Reproducibility of Borehole Shear Test Results in Marine Clay
An investigation was conducted to determine the variability of borehole shear test results obtained in testing soft and medium consistency marine clays. A statistical comparison of the results of stage tests obtained by different operators at two test depths at a research site is made. An additional comparison of the results obtained from stage tests and fresh shearing and a brief discussion of the linearity of both types of tests is also made. A short summary discussing the applicability of the results is also presented.
