In this study, relations among unconfined compressive strength, strain at maximum strength and depth were compared with each other. Test specimen is marine clay originated from the place near Ga-duck island in Busan city. In addition, influence of impure material contained in specimen and that of total core recovery(TCR) on unconfined compressive strength and degree of disturbance were investigated. As a result of tests, unconfined compressive strength decreases as strain corresponding to maximum strength increases. Also, the deeper the sampling depth and the bigger the TCR, the unconfined compressive strength increases. Especially, as the TCR increases, the unconfined compressive strength Increases and quality of specimen is enhanced.
