Consolidated Undrained Triaxial Testing of a Fine Grained Soil
A consolidated undrained triaxial test was carried out by 16 separate groups to give a broad appreciation of soil behaviour by plotting the resulting effective stress paths.
To determine the value of...
Application of the Triaxial test in engineering practice
The information such as the shear strength parameters and the cohesion that obtained from triaxial test can be used to check the safety and predict the behaviors of long-term stability of slopes, earth fills and earth retaining structures.
The purpose of the test is to determine the undrained shear strength and cohesion of cohesive soil.
a. Three set of soil specimens with a dimension of 78 mm height and 38 mm diameter are prepared. The specimens are wei
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 th
From civil engineering view, Soil is the medium through which the structural loads are transferred safely and efficiently. Soil should be consistent enough to satisfy the requirements even under inevitable circumstances like earthquake, bomb reactions etc. It is necessary to incorpo

Experiment 22: Triaxial Compression Test
Why: The main reason that engineers conduct the Triaxial Compression Test is to obtain the shear
strength parameters of a soil specimen. These parameters include vital information concerning
the overall shear strength of the sample, such as the soil's

The vane shear apparatus makes use of the theory that the summation of the total shear stress is equal to the sum of the shear stress at failure along the cylindrical surface and the total shear stress on the top and the bottom of the surface of the cylinder. The various sizes of the vanes
