DEFORMATION BEHAVIOUR OF SAND; TESTS WITH CYCLIC CHANGING LOADING

VERVORMINGSGEDRAG VAN ZAND; PROEVEN MET CYCLISCH WISSELENDE BELASTINGEN

After an introduction on cyclic load testing of sand in general, a description of the triaxial and shear box test in particular is given. To overcome necking of samples and inconstancy of the cyclic loading a modified triaxial apparatus for vertical cyclic loading of sand is designed. Cyclic loading tests with the modified apparatus were carried out on dry and saturated sand samples to test the validity of the apparatus in determining the deformation behaviour of sand. Conclusions are drawn. (TRRL)
