Observation of the stress distribution in crushed glass with applications to soil reinforcement

Abstract:

The research described in this dissertation follows on from the study made by Jewell (1980)into the effects of tensile reinforcement on the mechanical behaviour of sand. For this study Jewell used the direct shear test with reinforcement placed about the central plane as shown in fig. 1.1. The direct shear test was chosen for the following reasons. (1) The reinforcement variables could be better controlled and examined in a unit cell test than in modular field studies of soil reinforcement s...
