CONSTITUTIVE BEHAVIOR OF STRESS-INDUCED ANISOTROPIC COHESIVE SOIL

The stress-strain response of a cohesive soil subjected to stress-induced anisotropy was investigated. Experimentation is described that involved the use of the directional shear cell (DSC). It was found that the DSC is capable of simulating the stress condition in a soil element in the ground, that is, the magnitude and direction of the principal stresses applied to the specimen can be controlled to duplicate in situ stress conditions. It was found that past stress history influences significantly the stress-strain response of cohesive soil. The details of the study are described, and the results are discussed.
