TRIAXIAL TESTS ON WEAK COHESIVE SOILS – SOME PRACTICAL REMARKS (PART 2)

This paper is a continuation of the paper “Triaxial tests on weak cohesive soils – some practical remarks (part 1)” and concerns the problems related to the preparation of weak cohesive soils for triaxial testing. This part (2/2) presents detailed description and discussion of the issues related to installation of specimen in the apparatus and assembling various accessories before the main test. It is based on the Authors’ own experience and literature review. Some

TRIAXIAL TESTS ON WEAK COHESIVE SOILS – SOME PRACTICAL REMARKS (PART 1)

Standard procedures of triaxial testing recommended e.g. in Eurocode 7 are often unsatisfactory in case of weak cohesive soils (soft and very soft clays, clayey soils with organic content, etc.), mainly due to the high deformability of these soils. Forming a specimen from material sampled in situ and installation of the necessary equipment (a membrane, filter paper strips or on-sample sensors, etc.) may be very difficult and can influence the quality of the test results. This paper (part 1/2
