effect of sample size on laboratory measurement of shear strength in terms of effective stress by Youxin Zheng Download PDF EPUB FB2

The main drawback concerns the sample size, in that for a small sized sample, the test results are affected by the non-uniformity of the stress in the sample. To investigate the sample size effect on the primary dynamic soil properties, namely the shear modulus and damping, a large scale simple shear apparatus was constructed.

Specimen size can have a significant impact on the measured shear strength. Accordingly, the selected parameters affect the related geotechnical engineering analysis and design. Methods: We tested three different specimen sizes of loose Ottawa sand in triaxial compression tests. The measured shear strength and friction angle are used to effect of sample size on laboratory measurement of shear strength in terms of effective stress book by: 5.

This contribution assesses the effect of particle surface roughness on the shear wave velocity (V S) and the small-strain stiffness (G 0) of soils using both laboratory shear plate dynamic tests and discrete element method (DEM) ess is both controlled and quantified to develop a more comprehensive understanding than was achieved in prior contributions that Cited by: A recent effective stress model of vane shear strength testing in soils can relate measured torques to vane shear strengths using theoretical analysis in terms of effective stress parameters.

A recent effective stress model of vane shear strength testing in soils can relate measured effect of sample size on laboratory measurement of shear strength in terms of effective stress book to vane shear strengths using theoretical analysis in terms of effective stress parameters.

The strength estimates are based on known in situ stresses and soil parameters derived from laboratory testing. Analysis of results indicates that shear strength may be reasonably predicted using the sum of tensile strength and total normal effect of sample size on laboratory measurement of shear strength in terms of effective stress book as an equivalent effective stress (σ’ = σt + σn).

Analysis also indicates that Bishop’s () effective stress formulation is a reasonable representation for effective stress by setting χ = S and by back. Size and morphological characteristics of particles play vital role on the shear and interfacial shear strength of sands.

Often, effects of these parameters are merged and cannot be easily separated. Effect of size of the particles on the shear and interfacial shear strength of sands is presented in this paper through direct shear and interface direct shear tests Cited by: In technical data sheets, the strength of an adhesive is generally stated in terms of its tensile lap-shear strength which is determined by performing tests on a single-lap adhesive joint.

The test piece is subjected to a shearing stress by applying a tensile load axially to the two lapped substrates (Fig.

28). The principle of effective stress is the most important principle in soil mechanics. Deformations of soils are a function of effective stresses not total stresses.

The principle of effective stresses applies only to normal stresses and not shear stresses. Total stress (σ) is equal to the sum of effective stress (σ’) and pore waterFile Size: KB. Using the pore-water pressure measured during the test, the shear strength determined from this test method can be expressed in terms of effective stress.

This shear strength may be applied to field conditions where full drainage can occur (drained conditions) or where pore pressures induced by loading can be estimated, and the field stress conditions are similar to.

The direct shear test using shear box is commonly recommended by practicing geotechnical engineers to obtain the cohesion and angle of internal friction for granular soils.

The clay liners involve sand as a main constituent with added clay of variable proportions. This research aims at investigating the reliability of using the direct shear test for different clay contents and different Cited by: Direct shear test or Box shear test is used to determine the shear strength of the soil.

It is more suitable for cohesionless soils. Shear strength of a soil is its maximum resistance to shearing stresses. The shear strength is expressed as.

Where C’ = Effective cohesion. = Effective stress = Effective angle of shearing : Sadanandam Anupoju. laboratory test, in which the stress state in the rock sample is axisymmetric and defined by the axial stress, confining pressure and pore pressure.

The results of this test are usually studied in terms of Terzaghi’s effective mean pressure and deviatoric stress which correspond to volume strain and the deviatoric strain [3].File Size: KB. Stress, σ, is defined as the force divided by the initial surface area, σ=F/A o.

This pulling stress is called tensile stress. Strain is what results from this stress. Strain, ε, is defined as the change in length divided by the original length, ε = Δ I / I o.

Before we proceed further with stress and strain, let's define some other types. Solutions for the example problem from the topic of Normal Stress and Shear Stress for the Solid Mechanics I course.

Deformation and Strain. The effective stress strength parameters that apply to a particular volume of clay will lie between these two bounds and will be determined by the spacing, extent and orientation of the fissures, by the direction of shearing, and by the kinematic constraints—that is, whether potential shear surfaces can seek out the lower-strength by: shear stress is the shear strength of the soil for the particular value of the normal force N or normal stress (N/A) applied to the soil, where A is the cross sectional area of the soil sample.

Fig. shows that a dense sand has a greater shear strength than a loose sand and this strength is reached at a smaller value of the Size: 1MB. Assemble the shear box 2. Compact the soil sample in mould after bringing it to optimum moisture condition 3. Carefully transfer the sample into shear box τf = c’ + σ’f tan ø’ Where c’ = apparent cohesion of soil in terms of effective stresses σ'f = effective normal stress.

The peak strength is the maximum value of the shear stress or the maximum value of the ratio of shear stress to effective mean or normal stress. For drained tests these will occur simultaneously, for undrained tests they may occur at different points and the definition used here is the maximum stress ratio.

regime as an example, Toker et al. (), in “Effective Stress and Shear Strength of Moist Uniform Spheres,” theoretically showed that the effective stress principle may be repre-sented by the suction-stress characteristic curve (SSCC)-based concept of Lu and Likos ().

The state of stress at any point can be defined in terms of the plane components of stress (, and) and the components (, and).In this research, the direction is assumed to be a principal axis and the antiplane shear stress components would vanish.

The plane geometric problem could then be analyzed in terms of the plane components of stress since the component is frequently Cited by: 9.

Note that in general, the tensile strength measured using the indirect methods is less than that measured used a direct tension apparatus.

Shear Tests Direct simple, double or punch shear tests can be conducted on rock. The tests allow a direct measurement of the intact rock shear strength. However, they are difficult to Size: KB. to be oriented parallel to the direction of shear and a residual strength condition to develop.

It has been reported that the ring shear test and other methods of soil strength measurements could yield varying internal angle of friction (Bishop, et al., ). This paper presents a description of the performance of the direct shear box and ring.

The shear stress can be calculated as indicated. Hide Text 38 A simple calculation for the 1" thickness we have in this case. Hide Text 39 The answer. Hide Text 40 So, after all our fussing around, we have determined the maximum shear stress in the beam. Shear Stress File Size: KB.

The short answer is that it depends on the tensile property and the characteristics of the material being tested. For a given cross-sectional area and for any gauge length, different specimen geometries have no effect on the ultimate tensile strength and the yield strength.

A triaxial shear test is a common method to measure the mechanical properties of many deformable solids, especially soil (e.g., sand, clay) and rock, and other granular materials or are several variations on the test. In a triaxial shear test, stress is applied to a sample of the material being tested in a way which results in stresses along one axis being.

Undrained shear strength The other very serious effect of sample size is to modify undrained shear strength, as measured in either the field or the laboratory. The effects of sample size on undrained shear strength have been reported by Bishop and Little (), Agarwal () and Clapham (), all studies involving the London Size: KB.

The choice of tooling, ease of processing and product quality are just a few of the factors driven by material shear strength. Shear is defined as the force that causes two contiguous parts of the same body to slide relative to each other in a direction parallel to their plane of contact. Shear strength is the stress required to yield or fracture the material in the plane of material cross.

The role of shear stress in the bending strength test of short and medium length specimens a is an experimental variable, but we can try to estimate t mechanics handbook [Johnson ] gives a for cylinder and sphere press on half-space: a=√4Fr/(πbE⊥), a= 3√3Fr/(4E ⊥) (4a, 4b) where: F – loading force (equal P or P/2), r – radius of cylindrical or spherical.

When we apply some force on a body, the body has a tendency to resist the applied force. So stress is the resistive force developed in a body per unit area.

Shear stress is resistive force developed per unit area in a body due to the applied Shear. geotechnical laboratory tests, allowing the shear strength and stiffness of soil and rock to be determined for use in geotechnical design.

Advantages over simpler procedures, such as the direct shear test, include the ability to control specimen drainage and take measurements of pore water pressures.

The ISO has recommended that in shear bond strength (SBS) tests, the load should be applied with a cross-head speed of within and mm/min (ISO-TR ) as relatively high cross-head speed may develop abnormal stress distribution during shear by: 5.

• For Newtonian fluids, the ratio of shear stress to shear rate is independent of the magnitude of shear rate –This ratio of shear stress to shear rate is called viscosity () • Eg., The viscosity of water at 20 °C is Pa s • For power-law fluids (shear thinning, dilatant), the ratio of shear stress to shear rate is dependent on theFile Size: KB.
