Paper Title:
The Study of Cemented Sand and Gravel Constitutive Model
  Abstract

Basing on triaxial experiments, the paper conducts the research to Cemented Sand and Gravel constitutive model. Using virtual rigid spring method, the Cemented Sand and Gravel constitutive model with considering the softening characteristics of material is established, and parameters needed are determined, the model establishes the foundation of non-linear analysis of Cemented Sand and Gravel structure. Mechanical properties and constitutive model study of Cemented Sand and Gravel is key to Cemented Sand and Gravel faced eath-rockfill dam. Basing the Mechanical properties triaxial experiment of the material, the paper gives further discussion on the constitutive model of Cemented Sand and Gravel. From the results of the triaxial test, when the cemented material content is smaller than 20kg/m3, the stress strain curve agrees quite well with hyperbolic law to which the normal gravel test curve also obeys, the exception is the increase of shearing strength. If the cemented material content is more than 30kg/m3, there is a peak value on the stress strain curve, the curve (before peak value) shows that axial strain increase with deviatoric stress with the increment gradually changing slowly, i.e. the stress strain curve has obvious nonlinear feature. the curve peaks value at the axial strain =2%, the stress strain curve present softening pattern that deviatoric stress decreases with the strain increase if continuous applying axial load. When axial strain lies between 2% and 6%, the shearing strength of samples decreases rapidly, after this interval, the shear strength tends to the stable value in the final. It is core problem the paper try to solve that how to describe Cemented Sand and Gravel constitutive model.
