Resumen

MOFFAT, Ricardo. Application of a hydromechanical model for internal erosion associated with the stress in the soil finer fraction. Obras y Proyectos [online]. 2015, n.17, pp.39-44. ISSN 0718-2813.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-28132015000100005.

A theoretical model to determine the hydromechanical boundary of an internally unstable soil subject to vertical seepage. The model is based on momentum balance equations, which consider that the system is divided into three components: water, finer soil fraction, and coarser soil fraction. The parameters of the model are: the effective stress, the porosity of the soil, the friction angle between the coarse and fine fractions, and the proportion of the effective stress that is transmitted to the finer fraction G*. Using laboratory data collected on a large permeameter, we demonstrate that the model is able to properly describe the observed behaviour. Furthermore, we show that the value of G* is related to the value of D15'/d85' and that it has the same trend as found experimentally. The proposed model is a promising method to deduce an approximate value of critical hydraulic gradient that triggers internal erosion in a cohesionless soil of known particle size distribution curve.

Palabras clave : internal erosion; critical hydraulic gradient; granular media; force transmission.
