The effect of ambient humidity on the stiffness and strength of a hyper-compacted silty clay for earth building [dataset]

Alessia Cuccurullo
The effect of pore suction and water content on the engineering properties of partially saturated soils has been extensively studied by geotechnical researchers. It is well known that unsaturated soils become stiffer, stronger and less permeable as suction increases and saturation decreases. The results from these studies are however not directly applicable to the analysis of earth buildings, which are made of coarser soils compacted to a much denser state. The present paper investigates the...
