Experimental Study on Mechanical Properties of Rock Pile
Rock pile is a typical kind of adverse engineering geologic phenomenon in mountainous engineering construction. In this paper, the Shui-ma(from Shuifu to Maliu Bay) expressway subgrade of rock pile in Yunnan Province is analyzed, and the mechanical properties of the rock pile are studied through indoor experiments. The results indicate that the main factor determining the engineering properties of rock pile is the particle composition, while the most influencing factor is the content of coarse particles. The relevant results can provide reference to engineering properties study of rock pile for other place.
