Study of Energy Dissipation in a Two-Phase Soil System

The dependence of energy dissipation coefficient on filtration properties and on creep characteristics of soil skeleton is examined. The study was carried out on the basis of the general solution of the joint task of creep and consolidation theory for a two-phase soil system obtained on the basis of the generalized model of bulk forces, taking into account the interaction of soil phases, changes over time in the general stress state at any point of the soil and additional pressures in pore water, and incomplete transfer of external pressure to the pore water. Interactions between phases are taken into account in the solution of the one-dimensional joint task of the theory of creep and consolidation, and the creep kernel is taken in the form of an exponential function. The formula for the deformation of two-phase soils is presented as the sum of two syllables due to primary and secondary consolidation of the soil. The strain formula uses experimentally obtained values of filtration characteristics and creep parameters of the soil skeleton. Using the formulas obtained, hysteresis loops under sinusoidal stress changes can be plotted and the energy expended per deformation cycle and the dissipation coefficient for two-phase soil can be obtained.
