dc.description.abstractA database of research quality CPTU and shear wave velocity information for Norwegian marine clays has been assembled so as to study the small strain stiffness relationships for these materials and to examine the potential use of CPTU and Vs data in combination for the purposes of characterising these soils. Data for sites where high quality block sampling was carried out have mostly been used. Improvements have been suggested to existing correlations between Gmax or Vs and index properties for these soils. Recent research has shown that CPTU qt and especially u2 and Vs can be measured reliably and repeatably and are not operator or equipment dependant. Therefore a new soil classification chart involving Qt and normalised shear wave velocity (Vs1) or Vs1 and Δu/σv0' is presented. Using this chart it is possible to clearly distinguish between clays of different OCR.en
