Abstract

Granular materials forming part of civil engineering structures crush as a result of static and dynamic loads. In this study the crushing of a sand under a combination of compression and shear loads is studied in the laboratory in the ring shear apparatus. The amount of crushing of the sand is evaluated using fractals. The effect of crushing on the angle of internal friction and the hydraulic conductivity of the sand is also presented.
