    Introduction The unconsolidated undrained (UU) Triaxial Test is a quick method of estimating the shear strength of a soil. The soil which undergoes the test is sheared to failure without prior consolidation meaning this test is perfect for soil samples which are undisturbed however this is never...

If a slope has reached consolidated equilibrium, the shear strength can be determined by taking representative samples of the soil and performing tests using unconsolidatedundrained testing procedures. The stability analysis is then performed much like a short-term stability...
