the purpose of the symposium was to provide an opportunity to review methods of assessing behaviour of embankments on compressible soils and design procedures to minimise the likelihood of instability in embankments. this report contains the papers presented at the symposium, together with summaries of the discussions. titles of the papers were as follows:- settlement of embankments (murray,rt); stability of embankments (symons,if); the predicted performance of soft clay under a trial embankment loading based on the cam-clay model (wroth,cp); the centrifuge test as part of the design system for road embankments (bassett,rh).
