Abstract: The slope of the application of soil mechanics to ocean engineering is reviewed. Topographic features of the oceans are briefly analyzed and methods of sampling sea-floor deposits as well as in-situ testing procedures are presented. The available data on index properties, shear strength and consolidation characteristics of near shore and deep-sea submarine soils are presented. Comparison is made between engineering properties of submarine soils and terrestrial soils.

Subject Headings: Ocean engineering | Submerging | Field tests | Shear strength | Soil strength | Consolidated soils | Slopes
