In engineering applications, information obtained during Soil explorations may be limited due to the difficulties encountered in sampling, testing and the costs involved. So, it is useful to determine properties of soils by using a small number of soil parameters that can be obtained easily. fit this study the correlations between the SPT-N Value and undrained shear strength (c(u)) are examined and developed for types of fine-grained soils based on Standard Penetration Test (SPT) corrections and test type considered statistically, and comparisons are made with Previous studies, It is observed that while the correlations proposed by Terzaghi and Peck (1967), commonly used in practice, and Stroud (1974) are compatable with those proposed by the current study, those proposed by the others have given quite high results.
