This situation suggests that differences in soil fabric, caused by the sample preparation technique (air pluviation), can influence the sand behaviour by inducing a significant contraction in extension.
The initial static shear stresses appear to reduce the cyclic shear resistance of loose air-pluviated sand in simple shear loading, in contrast to the increases in resistance reported on the basis of data from triaxial testing.
X-ray computed tomography (CT) methods and specialized triaxial equipment were developed to quantify void ratio distribution within saturated sand specimens reconstituted by water pluviation and moist tamping methods during undrained triaxial compression and extension.
Key words: liquefaction of sands, air-pluviation, cyclic loading, direct simple shear testing, specimen preparation, fabric.
Water-pluviated samples of Ottawa sand were tested in monotonic, undrained triaxial extension tests.
Three samples of different densities were simulated by deposition under gravity to mimic the air pluviation method.
Artificial glass beads were water pluviated to permit consistent repeatable uniform samples.
Although the observed trends in mechanical response were similar, air-pluviated specimens were more susceptible to liquefaction under cyclic loading than their water-pluviated counterparts.
Densification due to increasing confining stress (stress densification) significantly increased the cyclic resistance of loose air-pluviated sand, with strong implications for the interpretation of observations from centrifuge testing.
Key words: sand, moist tamping, water pluviation, undrained compression and extension, X-ray computed tomography.
