THE SHEARING RESISTANCE OF GRANULAR SOILS

The object of this paper is to analyse the shearing resistance of granular soils. The various characteristics of the individual particles, i.e., size and shape and the grading and packing of aggregations of the particles, are examined and their effect on the properties of the soil mass are studied and explained. /Author/
