    The Corps of Engineers has prepared a basic report of investigation for proposed underwater barriers in the San Francisco Bay area. In completing this study, it has been necessary to obtain soil design constants and to develop methods of analyses. This paper deals with the comparison of field vane-shear results and shear-strength constants as developed in the laboratory. The tests were conducted on soft bay mud that had been overlain for several years with a large displacement type fill.
