A CRITICAL STUDY OF THE UNIQUENESS OF STATE BOUNDARY SURFACE FOR SATURATED SPECIMENS OF KAOLIN

This paper is concerned with a detailed study of the uniqueness of state boundary surface for saturated specimens of kaolin. Specimens of kaolin prepared from a slurry were sheared from several isotropic stress states under a wide variety of imposed stress paths in a conventional axisymmetric triaxial apparatus under stress controlled conditions. The data corresponding to the state paths followed by over 25 test specimens are presented and discussed. The effects of several other factors such as the initial one dimensional consolidation stress used in sample preparation, the load increment size, the load increment duration etc. On the state boundary surface are also considered in detail. /Author/TRRL/
