Anisotropic Characterisation of Reinforced Sand
Embargo Lift Date
MetadataShow full item record
Soil reinforcement is widely used in many geo-structures that induce complex anisotropic conditions, i.e. principal stresses with different directions α, different intermediate principal stress parameters b and/or cyclic rotation of the principal stress direction. The Results of this thesis improve the understanding of anisotropic three-dimensional stress states, σ1 ≠ σ2 ≠ σ3, on the characterization of reinforced sand so that solid designs and analyses of reinforced geostructures can be achieved.
