Abstract

"A study was made of the stress-strain characteristics of compacted samples of a modified loessial soil obtained near Memphis, Tennessee. The study consisted of compacting samples at a constant water content and at unit weights of 92, 96 and 100 pounds per cubic foot (1470, 1540 and 1600 kg/m3). Triaxial tests were performed on unsaturated compacted specimens to obtain stress-strain-volume change data. These data were used to determine stress-dependent functions for tangent modulus and Poisson's ratio"--Abstract, page ii.
