CRITICAL STATE MODEL FOR CYCLIC LOAD PORE PRESSURE

A theoretical model is developed to predict the magnitude of stress pore pressure that will develop from undrained cyclic and other repeated loading. The model is based on the concepts of critical state soil mechanics and is general with regard to type of soil, level of cycles stress, and boundary conditions of testing or in situ stress state. Using the model, excess pore pressures can be predicted from measured values of fundamental soil properties, including volumetric compressibility and volume change potential. The model is tested and verified using data from 25 different soils ranging form uniform sands to highly plastic clays and representing a variety of in situ and laboratory test methods. /Author/
