    Abstract

    The Norwegian Geotechnical Institute has recently developed a light inspection vane borer for field determination of the undrained shear strength in clay. The range of the instrument is from 0 to 2 tons/ft2 (0 to 20 tons/m2). It is primarily intended for use in trenches and excavations at a depth not influenced by drying and excavation procedure.
