The relationship between mechanical properties and compaction condition for crushable volcanic soils
In recent years, collapse of embankment structures have been frequently caused due to earthquakes and heavy rains. In order to prevent the collapse of the embankments, it is well known that sufficient compaction of soil and draining controlling are necessary.
In order to reveal the mechanical properties of compacted soil, the relationships among undrained strength, cyclic strength, shear modulus and permeability coefficient should be investigated.
The mechanical properties of compacted sandy silt soil adopted as river dike has been studied. Hereafter, a series of tests for compacted volcanic soil will be performed.
