Abstract

The stress at 1% strain in the unconfined compression test (Su1.0%) was found to be a good indicator of the resilient modulus (MR), and an empirical relationship between MR and Su1.0% was obtained. Closed-system freeze-thaw tests were also performed and the effect of freeze-thaw on the resilient modulus was studied. There is a negligible effect of freeze-thaw, without ice lens formation, for soils having values of Su1.0% increases. The resilient modulus of frozen cohesive soil is independent of the repeated deviator stress. -from Authors
