COMPARISON AND PERFORMANCE OF REPEATED LOAD TRIAXIAL TEST EQUIPMENT FOR UNBOUND GRANULAR MATERIALS

For the purpose of road pavement design unbound granular materials may be tested in a cyclic load triaxial apparatus. There is, however, no standard triaxial apparatus and no standard test procedure. In a "laboratory twinning" project the performance of different triaxial rigs has been investigated. After a series of test programmes on natural materials and on artificial specimens, it appeared that considerably different results are obtained which are related to the differences in equipment and compaction method. For the covering abstract see IRRD 883133.
