ON THE RHEOLOGICAL BEHAVIOR OF FROZEN SOIL. PART I

TO EXAMINE THE RHEOLOGICAL BEHAVIOR OF FROZEN SOIL, AN EXPERIMENT OF COMPRESSION IN AXIAL DIRECTION WAS CARRIED OUT, USING THE SAMPLES MOULDED INTO CYLINDRICAL FORM WHICH WERE 5 CM IN DIAMETER AND 9 CM IN HEIGHT. THE RESULTS WERE ANALYSED ACCORDING TO THE MURAYAMA AND SHIBATA THEORY FOR THE RHEOLOGICAL CHARACTERS OF CLAY, AND IT MAY BE CONSIDERED THAT THE UPPER YIELD VALUE OF FROZEN SILTY CLAY WAS BETWEEN 10 AND 20 KG/CM SQUARE CENTIMETER AT -5 DEGREES C AND GREATER THAN 20 KG/CM SQUARE CENTIMETER AT -10 DEGREES C AND ALSO ITS LOWER YIELD VALUE WAS ABOUT 2-4 KG/CM SQUARE CENTIMETER. THE DEFORMATION OF FROZEN SILTY SAND WAS GREATER THAN THAT OF SILTY CLAY UNDER THE SAME TEMPERATURE AND LOAD IN ALL SAMPLES EXAMINED. /RRL/A/
