ABSTRACT

In order to explore the effects of moisture content and plasticity index on Duncan-Chang model parameters K,n, C and Rf, we selected 8 groups of soft soil with water content of 69.1% - 94.3% and plasticity index of 32.2 - 54.1 for triaxial unconsolidated undrained shear test. The results show that CuuK and n values all showed a downward trend, and Rf variation was not obvious with the increase of moisture content. The variation rule of each parameter is not obvious with the increase of plasticity index. When moisture content is constant, Cuu and n values do not change much, K increases with the increase of plasticity index within the range of 70% - 80% moisture content, and does not change much with the increase of plasticity index when moisture content is greater than 80%, Rf has no obvious rule. When the plasticity index is constant, CuuKand n decrease with the increase of moisture content, Rf has no obvious rule. The maximum value of Cuu is 20.18 kPa, the minimum is 3.72 kPa, and the maximum to minimum ratio is 5.42. The maximum value of K is 0.517, the minimum is 0.022, and the maximum to minimum ratio is 23.5. The maximum value of n is 1.198, the minimum is 0.150, and the maximum to minimum ratio is 7.99. The maximum value of Rf is 0.872, the minimum is 0.679, and the maximum to minimum ratio is 1.28.
