DILATANCY OF GRANULAR MEDIA IN TRIAXIAL SHEAR (ABRIDGMENT)

In this study equations for volume change are derived in accordance with the particulate model advanced by Rowe. Using the stress-deformation results obtained from triaxial compression tests, the volumetric strain of two granular materials (a natural gravel and a crushed limestone) during triaxial loading are predicted and compared with the observed data. Also discussed is how dilatancy/contraction is influenced by (a) surface texture of particles, (b) elastic properties of individual grains, (c) geometrical factors such as grain size and shape factors, and (d) packing of the mix.
