STRESS HISTORY EFFECTS ON STRESS-STRAIN BEHAVIOUR OF A SATURATED CLAY

THIS PAPER SUMMARIZES DATA ILLUSTRATING THE EFFECTS OF STRESS HISTORY ON THE STRESS-STRAIN BEHAVIOUR OF REMOULDED SPECIMENS OF KAOLIN TESTED IN THE CONVENTIONAL TRIAXIAL APPARATUS UNDER STRESS CONTROLLED CONDITIONS. THE EFFECTS CONSIDERED ARE INITIAL ONE-DIMENSIONAL CONSOLIDATION STRESS USED IN SAMPLE PREPARATION, LOAD INCREMENT, MAGNITUDE OF ISOTROPIC CONSOLIDATION STRESS PRIOR TO SHEAR, AND TYPE OF APPLIED STRESS PATH. IT IS SHOWN THAT THESE FACTORS INFLUENCE THE DEFORMATION CHARACTERISTICS OF A SATURATED CLAY. METHODS WHICH TAKE ACCOUNT OF THESE EFFECTS ARE PROPOSED TO CORRELATE THE TEST RESULTS. THE RESULTS ARE USEFUL IN INVESTIGATING THE POSSIBILITY OF INCLUDING THESE EFFECTS IN THE EXISTING STRESS-STRAIN THEORIES. /AUTHOR/
