STRESS-STRAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF SAND IN A PARTICLE-CRUSHING REGION

Yield curves of sand in a particle-crushing region were determined by a multi-step stress path method under triaxial compression and extension stresses. Based on a new expression for energy dissipation per unit volume, a yield curve equation was derived and this equation was proved to be well comparable with the experimental curve. An equation for predicting the stress-strain relation was also presented. This stress-strain equation was shown to be very conformable with the experimental stress-strain curves in conditions of both triaxial compression and extension stress regions. (TRRL)
