Strength and deformability of clayey soils in tension
1. The failure of soil in the investigated range of initial states (density and moisture content) and loading paths is determined by the mechanism of breaking (brittle fracture), and the elastic component of limit strain in tension e 3 (e)* is constant.
3. For soils with a degree of brittleness k ≤ 0.15, the effect of tensile stresses on the plastic component of deformation may be neglected. The volumetric strain here is almost completely elastic.
