Example text

If the long term equilibrium structure is just weak enough for a failure to occur then, in this special case, the long term factor of safety is unity. Here the effective stresses and hence strength are determined by the equilibrium pore pressures (Fig. 10, curve A). If a model shear test is to be used to provide appropriate shear strength data with which to analyse the stability of this condition, then the similitude requirements could indicate the use of a slow or drained test. The drained shear test may be used to give a direct measure of shear strength or it may be used to give an indirect measure of shear strength by providing c H and tan  H .

However, while the compressible soil structure requires a volume change to change its loading, the relatively incompressible pore water may change its pressure without much volume change. The external loading change is therefore re¯ected by a change in pore pressure. With time, this `excess' pore pressure will dissipate, volume change occurring by pore-water ¯ow until the consequent change in structural con®guration brings the structural loading into equilibrium with the changed external loading.

The drained shear test may be used to give a direct measure of shear strength or it may be used to give an indirect measure of shear strength by providing c H and tan  H . Using the effective stress shear strength parameters c H and tan  H in an effective stress analysis requires an estimation of the pore pressures.
