ELASTIC BEHAVIOR OF COHESIONLESS SOIL

ELASTIC PROPERTIES OF SAND ARE STUDIED IN TRIAXIAL COMPRESSION TESTS. IT IS SHOWN THAT THE ELASTIC PROPERTIES ARE ONLY A FUNCTION OF THE STATE OF THE SOIL AS EXPRESSED BY STRESS AND VOID RATIO, AND THAT FOR SAMPLES WITH A GIVEN INITIAL VOID RATIO, THE ELASTIC PROPERTIES VARY BOTH WITH THE DEVIATOR STRESS AND MEAN NORMAL STRESS. THESE ELASTIC PROPERTIES BECOME ANISOTROPIC WHEN A SOIL ELEMENT IS SHEARED, AND THIS ANISOTROPY APPEARS TO BE A FUNCTION OF THE STRESS RATIO. FINALLY, AN INCREMENTAL ELASTIC STRESS-STRAIN RELATIONSHIP IS PRESENTED. /AUTHOR/
