Hong Kong marine deposits (HKMD) are considered to be difficult (or weak) soils for civil projects because of low shear strength and time-dependent high compressibility. Understanding and modelling the time-dependent stress-strain behaviour of HKMD are of practical significance in the analysis and design of civil structures on and in HKMD. In this technical note, test data on the time-dependent behaviour of a remoulded HKMD are presented and analysed. An existing elastic viscoplastic (EVP) modelling framework is used to described the time-dependent stress-strain behaviour of HKMD. The modelling results are compared with the measured results.
