QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SHEAR STRENGTH AND FRACTAL DIMENSION OF SOLIDIFIED DREDGER FILL WITH DIFFERENT FLY ASH CONTENT UNDER MONOTONIC SHEAR
The dredger fill of Shanghai Hengsha Island Dongtan is solidified by curing agents with different fly ash content, and the shear strength index of solidified dredger fill is measured by the direct shear test. The microscopic images of solidified dredger fill are obtained by using SEM. The microscopic images are processed and analyzed by using IPP, and the fractal dimension including particle size fractal dimension Dps, aperture fractal dimension Dbs and particle surface fractal dimension Dpr is calculated by fractal theory. The quantitative analysis of the relationship between shear strength index and fractal dimension of solidified dredger fill is done. The research results show that the internal friction angle and the cohesion are closely related to the fly ash content λ and the curing period T, and the addition of fly ash can improve the effect of curing agent; There is no obvious linear relationship between the internal friction angle and the three fractal dimensions; The smaller particle surface fractal dimension Dpr and particle size fractal dimension Dps, the larger aperture fractal dimension Dbs, the greater the cohesion, and the cohesion has a good linear relationship with three fractal dimensions, and the correlation coefficient R2 is above 0.91.
