Experimental Study of Liquefaction Resistant Characteristics of Remodeled Clayey Sands

Abstract:

Article Preview

Cyclic triaxial tests were carried out for remodeled saturated clayey sands with the clay content varying in a relatively wide range from 0% to 40%. In the tests, saturated uniformity clayey sands were obtained by pre-freezing method, i.e. immersing samples in pure water for 12 hours under vacuum, and then, freezing the sample to -15°C for 6 hours. Experimental results indicate that the lowest liquefaction resistance in mixtures occurs when clay contents is of the order of 15%. The ratio of liquefaction shear stresses of the specimens obtained using pre-freezing method are larger than those obtained with the traditional deposit-in-water method.
