Abstract

Results from undrained torsional shear tests are presented and used to further examine the concepts of steady state and structural collapse in sands, with emphasis on the influence of the collapse mechanism on soil behavior at steady state. It is shown that the degree to which the material collapses is dependent on the loading conditions and the initial fabric of the sand. Consequently, the steady state position in the state diagram is also function of these parameters.

Structural Collapse Behavior of Sands in Undrained Shear

St. Louis, Missouri

Results from undrained torsional shear tests are presented and used to further examine the concepts of steady state and structural collapse in sands, with emphasis on the influence of the collapse mechanism on soil behavior at steady state. It is shown that the degree to which the material collapses is dependent on the loading conditions and the initial fabric of the sand. Consequently, the steady state position in the state diagram is also function of these parameters.
