Abstract

A collapsible soil obtained from Colstrip Montana (USA) and a fabricated soil prepared to have similar properties were subjected to consolidation, triaxial and cyclic triaxial tests under both normal moisture content and saturated conditions. Under normal moisture content the fabricated soil experienced larger deformations than the collapsible soil. However, under saturated conditions both soils experienced approximately the same amount of deformation. The higher resistance to deformation of the collapsible soil is thought to be due to a specialized structure which is destroyed upon saturation.
