A Hyperbolic Model for Stress-strain Behavior of Unsaturated Soils

Abstract

A new simple shear apparatus is fabricated which is capable of applying monotonic and cyclic load on soil specimens. A series of tests was conducted to study the pore pressures (or suction), volume change, and shear behavior of the soil samples with anisotropic consolidation pressure. The simple shear apparatus is capable of controlling as well as measuring… (More)
