Abstract

This paper is mainly focused on two parts: (a) to clarify the mechanism of migration of excess pore water pressure in clay specimen and (b) subsequent consolidation behavior after the dissipation of excess pore water pressure accumulated due to undrained cyclic loading. A new technique to measure the pore pressure at the mid-height periphery of a triaxial specimen was developed. The effect of loading frequency and the stress level on the generation of excess pore pressure at the top, bottom and at mid-height of the specimen has been discussed. The variation of recompression index due to the dissipation of excess pore pressure is investigated in detail and the results are compared with those obtained from undrained cyclic torsional simple shear tests.

Subsequent Consolidation of Clay Subjected to Undrained Cyclic Loading

St. Louis, Missouri

This paper is mainly focused on two parts: (a) to clarify the mechanism of migration of excess pore water pressure in clay specimen and (b) subsequent consolidation behavior after the dissipation of excess pore water pressure accumulated due to undrained cyclic loading.
