Abstract

Progressive axial strain produced by cyclic, triaxial loading conditions was measured on Ottawa sand samples of various relative densities. The theoretical cyclic shearing strain amplitude in each sample was determined using a modified, hyperbolic shearing stress-shearing strain relationship. The data shows a linear log-log correlation between the measured progressive axial strain and the calculated cyclic shearing strain amplitude. The correlation is proposed as a general procedure for predicting progressive strains resulting from general cyclic, triaxial loading conditions.

Progressive Strain of Sand Due to Cyclic Loading

St. Louis, Missouri

Progressive axial strain produced by cyclic, triaxial loading conditions was measured on Ottawa sand samples of various relative densities. The theoretical cyclic shearing strain amplitude in each sample was determined using a modified, hyperbolic shearing stress-shearing strain relationship. The data shows a linear log-log correlation between the measured progressive axial strain and the calculated cyclic shearing strain amplitude. The correlation is proposed as a general procedure for predicting progressive strains resulting from general cyclic, triaxial loading conditions.
