Serial Information: Journal of the Geotechnical Engineering Division, 1980, Vol. 106, Issue 1, Pg. 65-98

Document Type: Journal Paper


Sampling methods used in Europe for onshore and offshore structures are reviewed as well as the disturbance of the samples caused by drilling, sampling, stress release, transportation and storage. The definition and classification of sample disturbance are considered as well as the influence of disturbance on shear strength and deformation properties of both cohesive and cohesionless soils under static and cyclic loading.

Subject Headings: Soil analysis | Offshore structures | Offshore drilling | Soil classification | Shear strength | Soil strength | Soil deformation | Cohesionless soils | Europe
