Abstract Installation and repetitive movement during the operation of a pipeline causes remolding and softening of the surrounding soil. Similar effects can occur around foundations during their operating life. The degradation of the undrained shear strength of soft clays near the seabed is a critical component of the design of subsea facilities, including pipelines and shallow foundations. This paper presents a two-stage strength degradation model based on the framework developed by Hodder et a...

The small-strain shear modulus (Gmax ) is a soil property that has many practical applications. The authors compiled a database of Gmax measurements for 40 normally consolidated to slightly overconsolidated low to high plasticity clays. Using these data, the authors propose a semi-empirical relationship between Gmax , effective stress (σ'v or σ'c), preconsolidation stress (σ'p) and in-situ void ratio (e0) for four ranges of plasticity index (Ip): Ip resulting from variations in effective stress ...

Abstract The average degree of consolidation of soft rock mass in the immediate vicinity of the base of drilled shaft or plate load tests was evaluated using the Biot Three-Dimensional Consolidation Theory. The compressibility parameters of soft rock mass were estimated using the contact pressure and displacement relationships obtained from the in situ drilled shaft and plate load tests. It was found that typical drilled shaft and plate load tests on soft rocks are drained to partially drained, ...

The influence of the displacement rate of a T-bar on the remoulded shear strength of a soft, natural, lightly overconsolidated marine clay is investigated. A series of T-bar cyclic tests was carried out in 12 box cores collected from the Gulf of Mexico. One general equation relating the displacement rate to the remoulded strength is presented, which provides insight on rate effects for remoulded clays and which can be used to correct for remoulded penetration resistance data for natural soft cla...
