THE EFFECT OF STRESS ON STRAIN AT THE ONSET OF TERTIARY CREEP OF FROZEN SOILS

Data from creep tests on frozen sands show that the strain at the onset of Tertiary creep, epr, can depend strongly on the applied stress. This observation is supported by data published previously for a frozen clay and a frozen sandy loam. Thus, the effect of stress on epr cannot be ignored in either theoretical or applied considerations. (TRRL)
