Geotechnicans in Sweden and rest of Scandinavia have a wide experience of stability calculations in cohesive soils. The two main parameters for this type of calculations are the undrained shear strength and the preconsolidation pressure. The most common methods in Sweden to determine the undrained shear strength in field is the vane shear strength test and CPT-test, in laboratories the fall cone test is well used. To determine the preconsolidation pressure CRS-analyses are well used. For more accurate measurements the odeometer tests are more suitable. However this method is both expensive and time-consuming form of analysis from a commercial aspect. Therefore is different correlation equations used as a compliment in these different stability evaluations.
This research will focus on the empirical Hansbo Correlation and its relation to results from commercial surveys. The commercial data come from Atkins Sverige’s project data base. The results after comparing Hansbo correlation with the commercial data showed on a significant divergence, which indicate a great unsureness of the Hansbo correlation. As a result of this contingency it is of importance to take cautiousness in the use of empirical correlations in stability calculations.
