RESILIENT AND RESIDUAL MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF COMPACTED KAOLINITE CLAY

THE EFFECT OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS ON THE CONVENTIONAL AND RHEOLOGICAL STRENGTH AND DEFORMATION CHARACTERISTICS OF COMPACTED CLAY WAS EVALUATED. THIS REPORT DOCUMENTS THE RESEARCH PERFORMED TO EVALUATE THE EFFECT OF REPEATED LOADING EXPERIENCED BY HIGHWAY SUBGRADES DUE TO TRAFFIC LOADS DURING THE SERVICE LIFE OF THE PAVEMENT. AFTER SUBJECTING KAOLIN CLAY SPECIMENS TO REPEATED LOADING, THE SPECIMENS WERE TESTED IN UNCONFINED CREEP AND UNCONFINED COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH. THE EXPERIMENTAL DATA: RESIDUAL STRAIN, RESILIENT MODULUS, COMPLEX ELASTIC MODULUS, MODULUS OF ELASTICITY, AND UNCONFINED COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH WERE ANALYZED TO DETERMINE THE DESIRABLE INITIAL STATE OF PAVEMENT SUBGRADE COMPACTION FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF THE PERFORMANCE OF THE SOIL UNDER REPEATED APPLICATIONS OF TRAFFIC LOADS. /AUTHOR/
