AN EXPERIMENTAL ANALYSIS OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF PORE-WATER PRESSURE IN AN UNSATURATED COMPACTED SOIL

This paper deals with the development of pore-water pressure in an unsaturated compacted residual soil submitted to isotropic compression at constant water content. Two series of isotropic constant water content tests were performed in a triaxial double walled cell. In the first series, no air drainage was allowed during compression, in the second one, the air was free to drain through the air line connected to the top of sample. An attempt is made to compare the measured pore-water pressures with theoretical estimates using the equations proposed by Hilf (1948) and Hasan and Fredlund (1980).
