The behaviour of a granular material under repeated loading
Boyce, John Rodney (1976) The behaviour of a granular material under repeated loading. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
A large number of repeated load triaxial tests were carried out on samples of a well graded crushed limestone, maximum particle size 38 mm. This material is commonly used for the base or sub-base layers of flexible highway pavements in the United Kingdom. The aim of the research was to measure the strains which occurred when the material was Subject to a wide range of stresses similar to those expected to occur in a pavement structure due to traffic loading. A review of previous work is presented and several new experimental techniques which were developed to achieve this aim are described.
