STRESS-DEFORMATION BEHAVIOR OF SAND STUDIED IN HOLLOW CYLINDER AND TRIAXIAL APPARATUS

THE INFLUENCE OF SAMPLE END CONSTRAINT ON THE STRESS- VOLUME CHANGE BEHAVIOR OF TRIAXIAL SAMPLES AND THE HOMOGENEITY OF STRAIN CONDITIONS WITHIN THEM HAS BEEN STUDIED USING COMPARATIVE TESTS ON TRIAXIAL AND HOLLOW CYLINDER SAMPLES. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT THE STRESS-STRAIN CURVES OBTAINED USING FRICTIONAL ENDS MAY BE EITHER FLATTER OR STEEPER THAN THOSE OBTAINED UNDER HOMOGENEOUS CONDITIONS. DEPENDING ON SAMPLE GEOMETRY AND THE FRICTIONAL PROPERTIES OF THE PLATENS AND SOIL PARTICLES. STRENGTH CHARACTERISTICS APPEAR TO BE UNAFFECTED BY END PLATEN FRICTION. /AUTHOR/
