CYCLIC LOADING OF SILTY CLAY WITH DRAINAGE PERIODS

Work is reported, the results of which were the improved performance of normally consolidated material when drainage periods were allowed between bursts of undrained cyclic loading. The work showed that anisotropically, normally consolidated silty clay, when subjected to undrained cyclic loading, develps pore pressures that move the effective stress state towards the failure condition. The number of cycles required to do this decreased with increasing cyclic deviator stress level. These and other study findings are presented.
