Shear Strength Parameters Determination of Compacted Loess with Compression-Tension Tests
Compression-tension test and direct shear test are used to evaluate the shear behavior of remolded loess under different water content and different dry weight density. Through massive analysis of test data, it is found that the valves of c and φ determined by compression-tension test can be used to characterize the shear strength index of soil.
