Abstract: Engineers in geotechnical practice work on increasingly complex problems with increasingly powerful numerical tools. Effective solutions to design problems need good information about the site and parameters (or functions) that describe how the soil will behave under the proposed loadings. These loadings can include heating, drying or wetting, time effects, and chemical changes as well as the more common structural loads. This paper outlines issues that need to be considered when laboratory tests are used to produce soil properties for use in numerical analyses. The focus is on soft to moderately stiff saturated clays. Similar considerations for in situ tests, stiff clays, and sands are not considered.
