Abstract

The results of two research projects are presented here. The first is based on soil exploration down to 20 m indicating that a difference exist horizontally in Szeged City, Hungary, possibly due to the variation of saline and non-saline soils in depth. The geotechnical laboratory and in situ data are treated by some statistical tests. In addition, chemical and some special, new tests (simple local side friction and cone resistance dissipation tests and multistage oedometric relaxation tests) are mentioned to characterize the fabric instability and composition of the saline layers. The second is based on the results of some geotechnical laboratory and in situ dissipation tests related to a saline spot up a depth down to 66 m.
