Compression and Extension of K//0 Normally Consolidated Kaolin
This paper describes a series of triaxial tests carried out in microcomputer controlled stress path equipment to investigate the strength and the state boundary surface for one-dimensionally normally consolidated kaolin clay. These tests comprise a variety of stress and strain controlled loading paths including drained, constant p prime +0,and undrained tests in compression and extension, many of which were not available previously in conventional triaxial equipment. The tests show that both the strength and stress-strain behavior were significantly effected by a one-dimensional consolidation stress history.
