DEFORMATION AND FLOW PROPERTIES OF CLAY SOILS FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF MODERN MATERIAL SCIENCE

THE HVORSLEV-TERZAGHI FAILURE CRITERION FORMULA IS A MODIFICATION OF THE COULOMB FORMULA DEFINING THE SHEAR STRENGTH OF CLAY AND SOIL. RENDULIC CONTINUED THE INVESTIGATION OF THE FUNDAMENTALS OF SHEAR STRENGTH OF COHESIVE SOILS BEGUN BY HVORSLEV. RENDULIC DEVISED A METHOD FOR COMPREHENSIVE GRAPHICAL REPRESENTATION OF THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN VOID RATIO /WATER CONTENT/ AND STRESS CONDITIONS IN TRIAXIAL TESTING. A SERIES OF EXPERIMENTS ON UNDISTURBED SOILS WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE THE USEFULNESS OF THIS THEORY TO PRACTICING CIVIL ENGINEERS. THE PROPOSED THEORY IS APPLICABLE TO DISTURBED AND UNDISTURBED SOILS, AND SHOULD FIND AN IMMEDIATE PRACTICAL APPLICATION IN SOIL MECHANICS, ESPECIALLY IN PROBLEMS DEALING WITH SLOPE STABILITY AND LATERAL EARTH PRESSURES AGAINST RETAINING STRUCTURES.
