Paper Title:
Evolution of Meso-Structure of Intact Loess during Loading
  Abstract

A series of triaxial shear tests on unsaturated intact loess were conducted using CT-multi-function triaxial apparatus. The distinct CT images and relevant CT data were obtained nondestructively during triaxial shear. CT data was used to define a structure parameter and an evolution variable which characterized the evolution of meso-structure. An equation is proposed to describe the evolution of meso-structure of unsaturated intact loess during loading, which reflects the influences of net cell pressure and suction on the evolution of meso-structure.
