Abstract

The results from an experimental campaign which aimed investigate the behaviour of fibre reinforced sand in the multiaxial stress space are shown in the present paper. Using the Hollow Cylinder Torsional Apparatus (HCTA), fibre reinforced samples have been subjected to probing stress paths with different orientation of principal stresses. The observed behaviour was found to be highly anisotropic and strength envelope in the multiaxial stress space will be for the first time provided for this type of material.
