Behavior of Mucks and Amorphous Peats as Embankment Foundations : Final Report
These materials of very low shear strength and very high compressibility are seldom used as embankment foundations. However, the research proposes a technique for successful use for low embankments (jflO ft), where loading is in stages. Stage height is controlled by suitable safety against bearing failure, lateral squeezing, embankment spreading, and rotational sliding. Strengths are determined at any stage of the construction by field vane shear measurements. Stage duration is determined bydoi:10.5703/1288284314605 fatcat:2ipzprog4jgwvj5dxhdjp2gmpy
