Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Engineering Mechanics

Abstract:

The effect of increasing stiffness in the soil skeleton on the effective stress path in undrained triaxial compression tests is experimentally examined and found to not be significant. The effect of creep in the soil skeleton tends to overshadow any possible effect of increasing soil stiffness.
