Abstract

Research has been conducted on mechanical behavior of crushable soils using triaxial apparatus, varying density and confining pressure of materials in addition to drainage conditions. We demonstrated what effect each factor has on the degree of particle crushing and mechanical behavior by comparing the experimental results of three different kinds of granular materials.
