Serial Information: Journal of the Soil Mechanics and Foundations Division, 1957, Vol. 83, Issue 1, Pg. 1-23

Document Type: Journal Paper


Study of relative density of natural sand deposits and its relationship to particle size and shear strength of soil; effectiveness of penetration test as means of determining relative density; data obtained from four sites show that relative density of undisturbed specimens is very uniform within individual stratum, but varies abruptly from one stratum to another; other soil properties found.
