|Abstract:||<p>The purpose of this research is to simulate the state of stress on soil element in the field under the action of moving wheel loads. The behaviour of an over-consolidated soil subjected to the action of repeated vertical stresses with concurrent repeated horizontal stresses (cell pressure) is compared to the behaviour of soil under the action of repeated vertical stresses with constant horizontal stress. Attention is given to the axial strains and pore water pressures generated under different loading conditions.</p>|
