Geotechnical properties of Karwar marine clay
(Indian Geotechnical Society, New Delhi, 1991)
Karwar marine clay possesses high plasticity characteristics with natural water content higher than the liquid limit. Liquidity index was as high as 1.7. Predominant clay mineral was kaolinite. Undrained shear strength ...
Design of a gravity corer for near shore sediment sampling
(NISCAIR, New Delhi, 1992)
For the purpose of geotechnical investigation a gravity corer has been designed and fabricated to obtain undisturbed sediment core samples from near shore waters. The corer was successfully operated at 75 stations up to ...
Geotechnical studies of Jaitapur marine clay
(NIO, Goa, 1991)
A gravity corer was designed and fabricated for near shore sediment sampling. The corer was operated off Jaitapur, West Coast of India, and 70 cores were obtained. The performance of the corer was quite satisfactory. The ...
Influence of salinity on permeability characteristics of marine sediments
Laboratory tests were conducted on compacted marine sediments to study the effect of salt concentration of permeating fluid on its permeability characteristics. Deep sea sediment samples were collected from water depths ...
