AbstractGeneral engineering properties of Leda clay have been recorded but this record is far from complete. Detailed studies of shear strength have been confined to samples from the Ottawa area. Earlier tests on tube samples indicated the need for fundamental studies on good undisturbed block samples.At every opportunity, therefore, block samples have been obtained from deep excavations.
