Abstract : Consideration is being given by the Corps of Engineers to dredge the ship channels and turning basins in the Los Angeles Harbor and to hydraulically dispose of the dredged material in parts of the harbor where new land areas are desired. This thesis studies the stability of the proposed hydraulic fill under seismic stress conditions. The soil design parameters assumed, were based on available soil properties of existing hydraulic fills in the harbor area. Generally, these fills consists of materials similiar to those found in the proposed dredged area. (Author)
