The drainage line from the specimen is still kept closed (drainage is not permitted) (u=ud0). At failure state =f ; pore water pressure u=uf=uo+ud(f) Consolidated Undrained (CU) Apply confining pressure 3 while the drainage line from the specimen is opened (drainage is permitted), then the initial pore water pressure (u=uo) is equal to zero Apply an added stress at axial direction. The drainage line from the specimen is kept closed (drainage is not permitted) (u=ud0). At failure state =f ; pore water pressure u=uf=uo+ud(f)=ud(f) Consolidated Drained (CD) Apply an added stress at axial direction. The drainage line from the specimen is opened (drainage is permitted) so the pore water pressure (u=ud) is equal to zero. At failure state =f ; pore water pressure u=uf=uo+ud(f)=0 3 3 Bina Nusantara

**STRESS-STRAIN RESPONSE OF SOILS**

Triaxial tests are the standard means of investigating the stress-strain-strength response of soils. To simplify, only simple shear tests will be considered. The simple shear test is an improved shear box test which imposes more uniform stresses and strains. s dx t dz H gxz gxz = dx/H ez = - dz/H = ev Bina Nusantara

47
**SAND BEHAVIOUR Depends on:**

Mean Effective stress (Normal effective stress in simple shear) Relative density, Id Bina Nusantara

48
SAND BEHAVIOUR Bina Nusantara

49
**SAND BEHAVIOUR For tests performed with the same normal stress**

All samples approach the same ultimate shear stress and void ratio, irrespective of the initial relative density Initially dense samples attain higher peak angles of friction Initially dense soils expand (dilate) when sheared Initially loose soils compress when sheared Bina Nusantara

50
SAND BEHAVIOUR Bina Nusantara

51
SAND BEHAVIOUR The ultimate values of shear stress and void ratio depend on the applied normal stress The ultimate stress ratio and angle of friction are independent of density and stress level Initially dense samples attain higher peak angles of friction, but the peak friction angle decreases as the stress increases Initially dense soils expand and initially loose soils compress when sheared. Increasing the normal stress causes less dilation (more compression) Bina Nusantara

52
CLAY BEHAVIOUR Essentially the same as sands. However, data presented as a function of OCR rather than relative density. OCR is defined as e log s’ CSL swelling line NCL - normal consolidation line It is found that NCL and CSL have the same slope in e-log s’ Bina Nusantara

53
**CLAY BEHAVIOUR – DRAINED CONDITION**

Bina Nusantara

54
**CLAY BEHAVIOUR – DRAINED CONDITION**

In drained loading the change in effective stress is identical to the change in total stress. In a shear box (or simple shear) test the normal stress is usually kept constant, and hence the response is fixed in the t, s’ plot. The soil heads towards a critical state when sheared, and this ultimate (or critical) state can be determined from the t, s’ plot. The change in void ratio can then be determined. Knowing the sign of the volume change enables the likely stress-strain response to be estimated. Bina Nusantara

55
**CLAY BEHAVIOUR – UNDRAINED CONDITION**

Bina Nusantara

56
**CLAY BEHAVIOUR – UNDRAINED CONDITION**

In undrained loading the void ratio (moisture content) must stay constant. The soil must head towards a critical state when sheared, and knowing e the critical state can be determined from the e, s’ plot. Once the critical state has been determined in the e, s’ plot the ultimate shear stress is also fixed. The ultimate shear stress is related to the undrained strength. This relation can be obtained by considering a Mohr’s circle. Bina Nusantara

57
**CLAY BEHAVIOUR – UNDRAINED CONDITION**

In undrained loading the effective stresses are fixed because void ratio (moisture content) must stay constant. The total stresses are controlled by the external loads, and the pore pressure is simply the difference between the total stress and effective stress. The CSL provides an explanation for the existence of cohesion (undrained strength) in frictional soils From the CSL it can also be seen that changes in moisture content (void ratio) will lead to different undrained strengths Bina Nusantara

58
**DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SAND AND CLAY**

All soils are essentially frictional materials but different parameters are used for sands (Id) and clays (OCR) e Clay Loose Sand Dense NCL NCL log s’ (MPa) Bina Nusantara 0.1 1 10 100
