    Abstract

    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.
