The role of silt-clay fraction on the consolidation behaviour of sandy soil has been studied.

Consolidation characteristics of sand-clay mixtures by Donald G. Anderson Download PDF EPUB FB2

Combinations of cohesive and cohesionless soils are often encountered when evaluating the engineering properties of soils. The stress-volume characteristics of the mixed soil are found to vary according to the proportion of each : Donald G.

Anderson. The current study is an attempt to understand the influence of sand particle size on the consolidation characteristics of sand–bentonite mixtures. Fine sand–bentonite and medium sand–bentonite mixes were prepared with sand content ranging from 50 to 90% by dry weight and tested for consolidation characteristics.

Consolidation characteristics of sand-clay mixtures grained behavior.\ud The purpose of this investigation was to establish a method for\ud predicting the compressional characteristics of a mixture controlled\ud by cohesive materials and to determine the percentage at which the\ud cohesionless soil began to control the behavior.\ud The two.

Swell and consolidation characteristics of these artificially prepared sand-clay mixes were studied in one dimensional consolidometer. Fine sand content and fines content in the expansive soil.

Laboratory tests on sand–marine clay mixtures reveal that the effect of sand mass fraction on the overall consolidation behavior is negligible for a sand mass fraction of 20% or less.

Further increase of the sand fraction significantly affects the overall consolidation process. To describe this behavior, a consolidation model is proposed within a homogenization framework. 1-D swell-consolidation tests were conducted on the sand-clay blends by free swell method.

Swell potential, swelling pressure, compression index and coefficient of compressibility were determined. The dry unit weight of the expansive soil was kept constant at 12 kN/m 3. Oven-dry soil passing µm and 75 µm sieve was used for the.

Sand-clay liners utilize expansive clay to act as a filler to occupy the voids in the sand and thus reduce the hydraulic conductivity of the mixture. The hydraulic conductivity and transfer of water and other substances through sand-clay mixtures are of prime concern in the design of liners and hydraulic by: 5.

A theory of seepage consolidation is described which uses the (non-seepage) sedimentation data to predict the water permeability of the sediment when seepage through a pervious bottom takes place.

Introduction. Most of the studies concerning the stress–strain and shear strength behavior of granular soils mainly inspected the response of clean sands. However, field observations show that granular soils may contain a considerable amount of clay and/or by: and grain characteristics.

3 UNDRAINED CYCLIC SHEAR PROPERTIES The specimens of sand-clay soil mixtures prepared by compaction and pre-consolidation methods were isotropically consolidated at an effective confining pressure of c’= kPa.

Then, undrained cyclic triaxial tests were conducted with. Consolidation properties of bentonite-sand mixtures, as reclamation materials, were investigated in the one-dimensional consolidation test.

From the relationships between the void ratio of nonclay fraction and consolidation pressure was found the existence of a threshold void ratio at which the frictional resistance becomes dominant during by:   In this work, the shear strength and consolidation characteristics of clay, clay with an ordinary sand column (OSC) and clay with a geotextile encased sand column (GESC) were investigated by carrying out laboratory direct shear and oedometer tests to study the response of the reinforced clay composite under both lateral and vertical loading Cited by: 1.

In general, very few macroflocs (D f > μm) were generated within these sand-clay mixtures, suggesting that the presence of the fine sand inhibits flocculation either through direct inter-fractional (sand-clay) collisions and/or induced shear due to differential settling effects, as initially hypothesised by Cuthbertson et al.

Highly expansive material can expand to a stage that is likely to cause excessive distortion to surfaces or provide an uneven support for foundations and light structures.

The response to loads and stresses on sand-clay mixtures has been studied by many researchers. Undrained cyclic shear characteristics of silt and sand mixtures 3 where eg is the granular void ratio of the sand-clay mixture, Vw is the volume of water, Vss is the volume of the coarser grains and Vsc is the volume of the finer grains.

Figure 2 provides the relation between granular void ratio, g, and fines content, after e Fc consolidation. Sand-clay mixtures are commonly used as a liner/barrier material in various engineering applications, such as construction of hydraulic and waste containments.

Permeability, compressibility and strength are important properties of sand-clay mixtures and are often required for the design of the liner/barrier of the containments.

In states like Western Australia, which is covered mostly by sandy Cited by: 4. The soil mixtures were obtained by blending clayey silt and sandy soil mechanically. The clayey silt soil used here was natural clay and the sand was available commercially.

Clean sand with three different grain size distributions has been mixed w 20, 30 and 40 % natural clay to form different sand-clay soil mixtures. Therefore, a four-phase analysis framework of sand–clay mixtures was introduced to unify the intrinsic compression behavior of soils with and without sands.

It was found that the updated clay void index I vc parameter was effective to unify the soil’s compression behavior by excluding the influence of sand particles in clays before the sand Cited by:   Pure clays or sand-clay mixtures with different clay mineral are widely used in liners or vertical barriers of waste landfill, and the pore water was characterized by its high salinity in coastal area.

Thus, it is essential to understand the salinity effects on their consolidation : Tongwei Zhang, Yongfeng Deng, Haocheng Xue, Xingjun Zhang, Shijun Wang. Part II: Permeability characteristics Canadian Geotechnical Journal 20 4 pp A.M. Samarasinghe Y.H. Huang V.P.
