AbstractThis report describes the results of a study to evaluate the shear strength of soft sensitive clay by field and laboratory testing. Information thus obtained was put to immediate use by the Seaway Authority. It has added considerably to the gradual accumulation by the Division of geotechnical information on the Leda Clay, of such wide importance in the Ottawa and St. Lawrence valleys.
