Time dependence of undrained stress-strain and strength behavior of a natural sensitive marine clay has been investigated with particular reference to the effects of strain rate, strain rate history, aging, and thixotropy. Triaxial samples, identically consolidated, were sheared under a variety of time-loading histories in order to simulate various deformation rate histories. The Stress-strain response and an increase in underained strength result from an increase in rate of strain, length of aging, and thixotropic hardening. However, the failure in terms of effective stresses is found to be independent of time effects of any kind whatsoever. /Author/
