Example text

As a result of the increase in mean stress there is an increase in pore pressure, as shown in the preceding section. This increase is equal to the rise in mean stress in the case of saturated soils, but is smaller where air is present in the voids. (b) Shear strains. It is a characteristic of particulate materials that shear strains result in changes in volume as the particles are rearranged. After large deformations have taken place, the original soil structure is completely destroyed. ), but is unaffected by the original particle arrangement.

Except perhaps within the adsorbed water layers, these fluids can offer no resistance to static shear forces. They can, however, support normal pressures, and these normal pressures form part of the total stress in the soil. 2 Effective stress (a'): Changes in the total stress and in the pore pressures in the soil lead to changes in volume and in shear strength. In considering the stability and compressibility of the soil, the first problem is to determine an effective stress (a') which controls the changes in volume and shear strength.
