CEEN 641 – ADVANCED SOIL MECHANICS HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT #26 1. Using the laboratory data shown below from three consolidated-undrained triaxial tests conducted on a compacted sand material: A. Determine the nonlinear, stress dependent coefficients R f , K, n, c, and φ for the Duncan- Chang model. B. Using this same model, write the general equation for the tangent modulus, E
