Abstract:

The report for the first year is an investigation of seasonal creep of soil. Flexible pipes, which change position in response to creeping soil, have been installed in three areas on the San Francisco Peninsula and two areas near Cincinnati, Ohio. Measurement of creep is obtained from successive readings of tilt of the pipes as a function of depth. Creep is being measured independently on square steel rods which were driven into the ground to different depths. Tilt of the rods is measured at the ground surface with a modified alidade.
