A METHOD OF MEASURING SOME PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF SOIL WITH A FORCED OSCILLATION VISCOMETER

THE APPLICATION IS REPORTED OF THE LOW-FREQUENCY FORCED OSCILLATION VISCOMETER TO STUDY VISCO-ELASTIC PROPERTIES OF SOIL. AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO MEASURE THE RHEOLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF THE SOIL. THE CYLINDRICAL SAMPLE METHOD WAS FOUND SUITABLE FOR MOISTURE CONTENT MEASUREMENT OF UNDISTURBED SOIL WITHOUT ANY SLIPPAGE. THE LINEARITY OF STRAIN-STRESS RELATIONSHIP WAS FOUND TO HOLD GOOD AT THE OSCILLATION AMPLITUDE OF 0.1 RADIAN IN THIS VISCOMETER. THE SOIL IS CONSIDERED AS A BURGERS' BODY AT THE STRESS WITHIN THE YIELD POINT. THE MODULUS OF RIGIDITY WAS EXTRAPOLATED AT VARIOUS WATER CONTENTS TO GIVE THE YIELD VALUES.
