MCV and shear strength of compacted fine-grained tills

Lindh, Per LU (2003) 12th Asian Regional Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (12ARC) In Proceedings of the Twelfth Asian Regional Conference Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, vol 1 and 2 p.493-496
Abstract
Compaction and shear strength tests have been performed on different compacted fine-grained tills. The results show that the water sensitivity of the soil is not only dependent on particle size but also on the soil's chemical composition. Comparisons between modified Proctor and the moisture condition value (MCV) show similarities between the optimum moisture content despite the differences in compaction methods. Correlations have also been established between MCV and c(u) for the tested soils. The regression models make a fairly good basis for modelling the shear strength, based on specimens produced by the moisture condition apparatus (MCA). Further more, the ageing effect on shear strength has been studied for two different soils.
