Cyclic load triaxial test – BRRC information leaflet A73

Cyclic load triaxial test

This test makes it possible to simulate in the laboratory the effect of road traffic on unbound granular materials used in base and subbase layers of roads, in order to allow:

Characterization of bound and unbound granular materials

Using secondary granular materials for (sub)base layers helps save on natural resources and transport costs and avoids expensive run to spoil.

Characterization of recycled materials for use in road construction and determination of the resilient moduli with the cyclic load triaxial test

Project carried out with financial support from the Federal Public Service (FPS) Economy, SMEs, Self-Employed and Energy (Conventions CCN 309 and CCN 359 – 1st March 2006 through 1st September 2008 – Conventions CCN 506 and CCN 556 – 1st September 2008 through 1st September 2010 – Conventions CCN 807 and CCN 857 – 1st September 2011 through 1st September 2013).

Characterization of recycled materials for use in road construction and determination of permanent deformations with the cyclic load triaxial test

Project carried out with financial support from the Federal Public Service (FPS) Economy, SMEs, Self-Employed and Energy (Contracts CC CCN/PN/NBN-506 and CC CCN/PN/NBN-556 – 1st September 2008 - 1st September 2010)
