Resum
The paper examines several aspects of rockfill behaviour, which are relevant to interpret and analyze the field response of dams and embankments. Experimental observations on rockfill compressibility, time-dependent deformation and deviatoric stress-strain behaviour are presented. Special attention is given to the role of relative humidity. The physics of rockfill deformation, explained by particle breakage are described. Particle breakage is explained by crack propagation, a phenomenon discusse...
