Study on Characteristic of Saturated Soft Clay under one-Way Cyclic Loading
Simulating traffic loading, the high liquid limit clay specimens and the low liquid limit clay specimens of the Pearl River delta are engaged in cyclic triaxial tests under one-way cyclic loading respectively. The influence of axial stress, confining stress and plasticity index are taken into account. A critical dynamic stress ratio of saturated soft clay under one-way cyclic loading and the variations of axis strain and pore pressure with number of cycles were obtained. The conclusions are helpful to compute the settlement of saturated soft foundation under traffic loading after work.
