Undisturbed Soil Sampling and Laboratory Tests on Chiayi Taibao Silty Sand

The NCTU research team performed drilling and undisturbed sampling in silty sand at Taibao township of Chiayi county. High quality 71mm diameter soil samples were taken using the Denison sampler, and then frozen above ground to preserve the sample. The soil samples were then transported to NCTU laboratory for constant rate of deformation consolidation and Ko consolidated, undrained triaxial compression test.
