Serial Information: Journal of the Geotechnical Engineering Division, 1975, Vol. 101, Issue 11, Pg. 1181-1187

Document Type: Journal Paper


The concept of using normalized soil behavior as a basis for design procedures in clay soil has been applied by several engineering groups. Ladd and Foott have presented a detailed background and description of a design technique, stress history and normalized soil engineering properties, and its application to the problem of undrained bearing capacity. This note is presented to describe these methods and illustrate the difference from SHANSEP.
