Determination of Tensile Strength of Compacted Loess by Double Punch Test
Through double punch test, the tensile strength of compacted loess is determined under different water contents and different dry densities, the relationship between tensile strength, water content and the dry weight density is discussed, and their relationship is established. Comparing with Brazilian test, it proved the feasibility of determining tensile strength of compacted loess with double punch tests.
