The cone penetration method has been used extensively to correlate cone penetration tests (CPTs) with different soil properties such as shear strength, sensitivity, grain size distribution, and consolidation history (Rad and Lunne, 1986; Low et al., 2010).
Therefore, the objective of this study was to evaluate the shear strength of bonded joints of two African mahogany species (Khaya ivorensis and Khaya senegalensis) from Brazil with four types of adhesives.
To investigate the effect of exposure time (0; 168; 456; 720 hours) of specimens in kiln in the shear strength values, an analysis of variance (ANOVA) was applied, using the software Minitab[R] 14, considering a 5% significance level (a), the null hypothesis consisting of means equivalence ([H.sub.0]) and their non-equivalence (at least two) as alternative hypothesis Hi).
[17] found that increasing the content of scrap tire shreds can improve the shear strength and permeability of clayey soil but can cause a decrease in the plasticity index, the expansion pressure, and expansion potential, compared with that of pure clayey soil.
The results of the previous studies show that the compression strength, the shear strength, the tensile capacity, and the bearing capacity of soil can be effectively improved by the reinforcement of polypropylene and other synthetic fibers.
Thus, determining the matric suction requires much more time; comparatively time associated with shear strength testing of unsaturated soils is significantly reduced from the smaller size of test samples, generally 61.8 mm diameter, 20 mm thickness (Bishop et al., 1960; Bishop et al., 1963; Ali et al., 2017; Anjum et al., 2017).
The UT-2080 tensile strength tester provides tests such as tensile, compression, tear, adhesion, shear strength, bending and drawing.
ABSTRACT: Slope failure is not necessarily related to the shear strength alone, the liquid limit and dry density in particular are useful indicators in determining the cause for slope failure.
Increase of the shear strength after a short plasma treatment with dry compressed air at atmospheric pressure is demonstrated for various technical thermoplastic materials: PBT (polybutylene terephthalate), PE (polyethylene, HDPE) and PA6 (polyamide), and comparable effects are found on polypropylene (PP) and LCP polyester (LCP).
