AbstractIt was the purpose of the work described in this report to assess the reliability of in situ and laboratory tests of shear strength on varved clay materials found at Steep Rock Iron Mines and, based on this assessment, to recommend future research on this important engineering problem. Results of consolidation tests are also presented. It is intended that these be used in a future settlement analysis.
