Effect of Cyclic Stress Level and Overconsolidation Ratio on Permanent Deformation Behaviour of Clayey Subsoil
|Published in:||Civil Engineering Journal, August 2018, n. 8, v. 4|
This paper presents the results of a series of one-way cyclic triaxial tests carried out to investigate the role of cyclic stress level and overconsolidation ratio (OCR) on the permanent deformation behaviour of saturated clayey subsoil during long-term cyclic loading. Based on the test results and shakedown concept, two cyclic threshold deviator stress ratios can be defined: the plastic shakedown limit cyclic deviator stress ratio CSRpt (0.46) and the plastic creep shakedown limit cyclic deviator stress ratio CSRpc (0.75). It was found that, below CSRpt, the soil experiences slight deformation and gradually achieves a long-term steady state response. Within the range of CSRpt
