Abstract

Mechanical stress-strain-strength properties of Arizona Lunar Simulant (ALS) are investigated by using a newly developed vacuum triaxial device that allows compaction under different initial vacuums and confinements. Influence of vacuum and confinement on compaction, strength and deformation characteristics of compacted material are delineated and discussed.
