Paper Title:
Experimental Study on Mechanical Behavior of the Intact Loess
  Abstract

As a “special earth”, the water sensitivity of loess is an improtant factor influencing its mechanical characters and engineering properties. Through carrying on tests on the FSY30 non-saturated triaxial instrume, this paper shows ~ and ~ curves of the intact loess under different water contents.Then, it is found that the mechanics characteristic of Q3 loess is mainly influenced by the stress condition as well as the water content condition. In addition, the mechanics behavior of intact Q3 loess appears over-consolidated feature under low water content and low cell pressure.
