A note on void ratio of fibre-reinforced soils
MetadataShow full item record
This technical note extends the concept of void ratio, presented traditionally in soil mechanics, for fibre-reinforced soils. Phase relationships related to the void ratio of fibre-reinforced soils are presented along with their definitions. A simple analytical model verified with experimental data for estimating the void ratio of fibre-reinforced soils is developed which can be used to express the compressibility of fibre-reinforced soils in geotechnical engineering applications. The results indicate that the void ratio of fibre-reinforced soils is dependent on the volume ratio of fibre-soil solid.
