Simulation on Triaxial Compression Creep Deformation of Reticulate Red Clay


Article Preview

Triaxial compression creep tests were performed on the undisturbed specimens of reticulate red clay from Dongting Lake area (China) under different confined stress. By analyzing the laboratory test results, following conclusions were drawn: (1) creep deformation occurred in all compression tests; (2) creep deformation increases as the increasing of the creep stress (compress stress) slightly; (3) the creep deformation occurred in the triaxial compression creep tests can be well simulated with Singh-Mitchell model.
