Located in a flat plain with an extensive covering of very soft clay, Ho Chi Minh city is still in its urbanization and urban expansion with an inevitable development in construction at rapid pace. SHANSEP parameters for soft clay in HCM City will be helpful for geotechnical engineers in quantifying the behavior of soft clay and proposing suitable solutions for soft ground improvement. This paper presents the results of 100 CIUC triaxial tests on 20 clay samples belonging to two different groups of soft clay (taken in Binh Thanh and Nha Be districts) tested with 5 different modes of OCRs, i.e. 1, 1.5, 2, 4, and 6. The test results are analyzed to obtain SHANSEP models with really high coefficient of determination (R2 â‰ˆ 1).
