|Abstract:||Shear strength is an important parameter in the study of extremely soft clays or slurries. Measurement of shear strength less than 0.5 kPa is limited to a few methods such as the rotary viscometer and the Swedish fall cone; the former is suitable for slurries and the latter for soft clay. An alternative method that relies on the incremental vertical penetration of a thin plate under an incremental load to directly obtain the shear strength of extremely soft clays is investigated here. -from Authors|
