    Abstract

    An attempt has been made to use the fall cone tests and the laboratory vane shear tests for measuring the undrained shear strength of cement/lime-solidified sediments from Dunkirk Port in France. The results of the fall cone tests and the laboratory vane tests performed on Dunkirk sediments are discussed. First, the relationship between the vane shear strength and the water content is explored. Second, the relationship between the depth of cone penetration and the water content is studied. Third, the relationship between the shear strength by the fall cone test and the depth of cone penetration is evaluated. Fourth, the relationship between the shear strength by the fall cone test and the water content is investigated. Finally, the comparison of undrained shear strength performed by the fall cone test and the vane shear test is performed.
