CHANGES IN THE BEHAVIOURAL AND STRUCTURAL CHARACTERICS OF A REPETITIVELY STRESSED SAND-CLAY

Under the action of repeated loading, pavement materials exhibit complex behavioral and structural changes. This paper reports an experimental examination of these changes in a sand-clay, subjected to repeated triaxial compressive stress. A variety of techniques was employed to study the behavioral and structural changes in the soil. These included the use of mercury instrucion porosimetry which enabled alterations in the pore system to be observed. Based on the experimental observations, some of the mechanisms associated with the structural changes were the indentified.
