Abstract

DOBRY et al, YOUD have shown the existence of a shearing threshold strain in the vicinity of 10-4 which guides the occurrence of liquefaction. With tests on glass beads and sand from the Algiers bay, using a proper measuring system, we were able to arrive at a better resolution of this threshold and to the determination of its mechanical signification.

Mechanical Characterization of the Threshold Strain in Sand Liquefaction

St. Louis, Missouri

DOBRY et al, YOUD have shown the existence of a shearing threshold strain in the vicinity of 10-4 which guides the occurrence of liquefaction. With tests on glass beads and sand from the Algiers bay, using a proper measuring system, we were able to arrive at a better resolution of this threshold and to the determination of its mechanical signification.
