Collapse-upon-wetting behaviour of a volcanic soil

Experimental results of volumetric response of a volcanic soil were collected in standard oedometric tests, with the aim to evaluate the volumetric response of this soil when subjected to loading and wetting paths. Microstructural features of reconstituted samples used in the experimental program are investigated. Test results are then interpreted within the framework of a constitutive model using effective stress.
