Abstract [en]

A laboratory study was performed of how soft clays respond to repeated sequences under cyclic loading. Two types of soft Swedish clays were tested in a triaxial cell. Each load sequence consisted of a number of stress-controlled load-cycles during undrained conditions, equalization of pore water pressure and subsequent draining. The frequency of axial stress variation during cyclic loading was 0.1 Hz. The tested clays were normally consolidated and had a low to medium plasticity, a low to very low undrained shear strength and a medium to high sensitivity. For two of the tests, where the cyclic loading of each sequence had been interrupted for draining well before the increment per cycle of the cyclic average of axial strain had started to increase, the value of the increment decreased with number of sequence. It was concluded that the capacity of the clays to withstand cyclic loading increased during these tests.
