SAMPLING OF COHESIONLESS SOILS WITHOUT DISTURBING THE PARTICLE PACKING

THE USE OF CHEMICAL GROUTS FOR SAMPLING GRANULAR SOILS WITHOUT DISTURBING THEIR GEOMETRIC ARRANGEMENT IS DISCUSSED. TESTS WERE CARRIED OUT ON CUBICAL SAMPLES OF GRAVEL, MEDIUM AND FINE SAND PREPARED IN AS LOOSE A PACKING AS POSSIBLE. LEAD SHOT PATTERNS WERE EMBEDDED IN THE SAMPLE AND X-RAY TECHNIQUES USED TO DETERMINE ANY STRAINS WITHIN THE SAMPLES. RESULTS SHOWED THAT THE POURING AND GELLING OF THE GROUT DID NOT CAUSE ANY NOTICEABLE STRAINS AS LONG AS COMPLETE SATURATION WAS MAINTAINED DURING THE GELLING PROCESS. /RRL/
