"The glacial subsoils of the Bloomington-Normal, Illinois area have been analyzed with regard to their engineering properties. Several boring logs are included to illustrate the horizontal and vertical variability in soil units encountered and in the engineering properties of these soil units. The engineering properties of the two most common foundation soils, the Bloomington and Normal tills are compared and special consideration is given to evaluating the compressibility of these materials. Evidence is presented that indicates that the circumferential trimming of a highly preconsolidated soil containing stones can cause significant sample disturbance. Special sampling techniques which eliminate circumferential trimming yield results considered to be more representative of a highly preconsolidated glacial till"--Synopsis, page .
