Abstract: Accurate determination of appropriate soil parameters is important in describing the in-situ soil behaviour. However, the current understanding of the geotechnical behaviour and properties of Singaporea??s soil deposits is still rather rudimentary. A further problem, particularly severe in soil mechanics, is the global and regional variation in soil types and behaviour. Marine clay in Singapore can display different behaviour from that in Japan or Europe due to the different depositional and environmental histories. To date, no such study have been conducted on geological deposit covering the Singapore Island. In-situ and laboratory tests were carried on Singapore Lower Marine Clay to study of the compressibility, shear strength, stiffness and the yielding behaviour of the Singapore marine clay. With this knowledge, the in-situ behaviour of the Singapore Lower Marine Clay will be compared to that of other clays, such as Ariake and Bothkennar clays. Unique features will be singled out and evaluated.
