Camparison of in situ and ship-board vane measurements on a deep- sea clay

Document Type


Date of Original Version



The main purpose of this paper is to present and compare some data on in situ and laboratory vane measurements made on a homogeneous illitic deep-sea clay in the N central Pacific. In addition to physical property data and subsampling, shear-strength measurements were made with a laboratory miniature vane device. This ocean test provided an opportunity to compare the in situ measurements, conducted under carefully controlled conditions, with those on very good quality core samples. -from Author
