Abstract

"The shearing properties of an organic A̲ horizon of Bryce clay were studied and compared with the properties of the same soil treated with hydrogen peroxide. The treatment was to remove the organic matter and isolate it as a variable. Tests were performed on artificially sedimented samples of the untreated, 75 percent untreated, 50 percent untreated, 25 percent untreated, and the treated soil. The effective stress failure envelopes were found to be higher for the untreated soil than that of the treated. The elastic deformation, however, was larger for the untreated samples. The pore water pressure development due to shearing process were found to higher for the treated soil. The difference in properties are thought to be caused by the presence or absence of the organic bonds"--Abstract, page ii.
