    Abstract

    This study examines the problem of measurement of soil sensitivity and the significance of soil remolding effects on the “remolded” strength of soil. A simple shear device has been adapted to provide a means for both soil remolding and continuous measurement of shear stress and strain using cyclic stress reversals. Computations can be made to relate soil remolding and input energy for correlation with measured remolded soil strength using the simple shear device.
