Abstract:Based on the individual databases, material property correlations and characterization models were developed for the soil and oil sand samples using the applied stress states, loading frequency, temperature and bitumen content as variables. The correlations and models may be used as practical predictive equations to estimate strength and stiffness behavior of fine-grained soils and oil sand materials, and predict the amount of rutting and sinkage in the field.
