Abstract:

The effect of rate of strain on shear strength of cohesive soils of marine sediments were studied. Vane shear apparatus tests were performed on an ocean sediment at varying permeabilities with various rates of shear. A variation in shear strength as high as 46.4 have been found over the range of rotation rates used in this experiment. Suggestions for further experimentation in this area are included.
