SECONDARY MECHANICAL DISTURBANCES - EFFECTS IN COHESIVE SOIL SAMPLES

DISTURBANCE EFFECTS IN SOIL SAMPLES WERE STUDIED. CERTAIN AFTER-EFFECTS FROM SAMPLING GIVE A TIME-DEPENDENT INFLUENCE. IN ADDITION, DAMAGE FROM DEFORMATION OF SAMPLES, SHOCKS, HEAVY VIBRATIONS, AND CHANGES IN WATER CONTENT AFTER SAMPLING ARE MAJOR SOURCES OF DISTURBANCE. SMALL VIBRATIONS AND TEMPERATURE CHANGES IN THE REGION 5--30 C DO NOT AFFECT SAMPLE STRENGTH SERIOUSLY. DISTURBANCE MAY GIVE HIGHER OR LOWER STRENGTH AND AFFECTS DIFFERENT LABORATORY TESTS DIFFERENTLY. THIS CAN BE USED AS A MEANS OF DETECTING DISTURBANCE. /AUTHOR/
