Özet

Particle breakage occurs when the stresses imposed on soil particles exceed their strength. In order to determine the crushing resistance, Anatolian sands were collected from three different locations in Turkey. Mineralogical, particle shape and size characteristics were first determined by laboratory testing and compaction and triaxial tests then undertaken. Particle breakage factors were calculated from the initial and final gradations of the samples. It was noted that the sample containing a third calcite experienced higher particle breakage.
