Paper Abstract

In this paper, a geotechnical ring shear apparatus and its utilization in the geotechnical tests of studying soil properties were introduced. The testing methods and technology of studying the static and dynamic mechanical properties of soils under large shear displacement were elaborated. It was found that, under the testing conditions of fast shear rate and dynamic loadings, the soil samples present very different features in contrast with the normal shear tests. The discrepancy can be attributed to the marked variations of pore pressure and geomorphology of shear band in the tests.
