Abstract

The results of a series of uniaxial compression creep and relaxation tests on cylindrical specimens of a remolded clay are reported. A multiple integral theory is used to describe the observed nonlinear mechanical behavior over a range of water contents and over a time range from a few seconds to beyond 10,000 min. Although the single integral representation, that is, linear viscoelastic theory, is found to be inadequate for characterizing the mechanical behavior of the soil, except perhaps for very small strains and very short times, the double and triple integral representations show quite good agreement with experimental data.
