Title: Yielding in isotropic compression of Porto silty sand
Issue Date: 2012
Abstract: The yielding locus of a well-graded silty sand was analysed by means of isotropic compression tests and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The tests were performed with precise instrumentation, for internal and external strain measurements, and shear-wave velocity measurements by means of bender elements. Finally, aiming at an accurate evaluation of the yield stress, four different methods were applied - two quite well know and the other two being innovative - leading to interesting conclusions.
