Abstract

Summary results are presented of a comprehensive experimental study to investigate the strength, stress-strain properties, and creep behaviour of fine-grained deep sediments. Isotropically (CUI) and anisotropically (CAU) consolidated undrained triaxial tests and drained triaxial creep tests were performed on undisturbed and reconstituted- reconsolidated (remolded) samples of smectite-rich and illite-rich deep sea clays from the North Central Pacific. Comparisons with terrestrial clays and near shore material display similar strengths of the deep sea sediments and greater deformation potential during long-term loading. -from Authors
