Event Description

Geotechnical Properties and Engineering Problems of Some of the North Central Texas Clay-Shales – Regional Geology Case History Series

Author: Robert Font, PhD, CPG, PG, EurGeol

Cretaceous shales in the north-central Texas area give rise to engineering problems.  This online short course covers:
- Regional geologic setting, structure and stratigraphy.
- Specific material geotechnical properties including:
     - Clay mineralogy, values of Atterberg limits and indices, potential volume change, shear strength, etc.
- Engineering problems and solutions concerning:
     - Accurate shear strength determination as dictated by field conditions, mass wasting, swell pressures and more.
