Abstract
Experimental results of isotropic stress tests performed on statically compacted clayey silt are presented to examine the volume change response of the material subjected to controlled increments in net mean stress and suction within the elastic domain. The results were interpreted with the help of a single effective stress equation –expressed as the sum of two components: the net stress and a fraction of suction– and enabled the determination of the constitutive parameter X entering into th...
