FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF THE 'TOY-EXPERIMENTS' ORIGINATED BY TERZAGHI FOR THE DETERMINATION OF THE AVERAGE COMPRESSIVE STRESS IN COARSE-GRAINED COHESIONLESS LAYERS

WEITERENTWICKLUNG DER VON TERZAGHI BEGONNENEN "TOY-EXPERIMENTS" ZUR ERMITTLUNG DER MITTLEREN DRUCKSPANNUNGEN IN GROBKOERNIGEN, KOHAESIONSLOSEN TRAGSCHICHTEN

THE THEORETICAL SECTION DEALS WITH: THE BEHAVIOUR OF COHESIONLESS SAND UNDER LOADING AS A CONCEPTUAL BASIS FOR THE DISTRIBUTION OF LOADS IN COARSE-GRAINED COHESIONLESS LAYERS; THE POSSIBILITY OF ESTIMATING STRESSES IN COARSE-GRAINED FILL (ANALYTICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL METHODS); TERZAGHI'S 'TOY-EXPERIMENTS'. THE PRACTICAL SECTION INCLUDES THE DESCRIPTION OF PRELIMINARY TESTS WITH COMPRESSED AND TENSIONED RODS AND WITH TENSIONED BANDS, OF LABORATORY TESTS AND OF COMPRESSIVE STRESS DETERMINATIONS IN A FILL-LAYER SIMULATOR. THE WORK ENDS WITH AN EXPOSITION OF THE POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS OF THE RESEARCH.
