TIME-DEPENDENT STRESS-STRAIN BEHAVIOR OF SILICATE-GROUTED SAND

The mechanical behavior of a sand grouted with different silicate gel compositions was studied under different states of uniaxial stresses: uniaxial compression with variations of strain rates, creeping behavior under different stress levels, relaxation behavior under different applied stresses including effect of various rates of application of those stresses, and creeping behavior under punching conditions. It was found that: when the dilution of the silicate and the stress level is held constant, the maximum resistance to creeping increases when the amount of Na 20 neutralized increases; when the amount of neutralized Na 20 and stress level are constant, the maximum resistance to creeping decreases when dilution increases; and the influence of variations of stress levels is stronger when the amount of neutralized Na 20 decreases and decreases when dilution increases. Observations concerning the influence of variations of stress level are valid for creeping behavior.
