STUDIES ON THE ELASTIC BEHAVIOR OF SAND AND CRUSHED STONE UNDER REPETITIVE LOADS

RESULTS ARE PRESENTED OF THE EXPERIMENTS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE EFFECT ON THE ELASTIC PROPERTIES OF CERTAIN NON-CONTINUOUS MEDIA, WHEN THEY ARE SUBJECTED TO A SERIES OF LOADING AND UNLOADING OPERATIONS. THE MEDIA WERE CHOSEN SAND AND CRUSHED STONE (BLUE METAL). THE TESTS WERE CONDUCTED AT TWO EXTREME CONDITIONS OF SEMI-INFINITE AND FULLY CONFINED STATES. RELATIVE DENSITY AND SIZE WERE THE VARIABLES FOR SAND AND CRUSHED STONE AND THE CHARACTERISTIC ELASTIC CONSTANTS UNDER INVESTIGATION WERE THE MODULUS OF VERTICAL SUBGRADE REACTION AND THE MODULUS OF ELASTICITY FOR THE TWO CONDITIONS OF TESTS, RESPECTIVELY. THE TESTS HAVE BORNE OUT THAT THE ELASTIC PROPERTIES IMPROVE CONSIDERABLY WITH REPETITIVE LOADING. /AUTHOR/
