  • Triaxial Compression Report

    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 cohesion and angle of internal friction. This information can then be used to obtain an accurate analysis of the soil's shear strength. Although there are several types of tests used to determine...

  • Uu Triaxial Report

    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 the case. This means that results have to be interpreted with care so the undrained shear strength of the soil is not underestimated. For the purpose of this test I used the results posted by Dr.Brian Mc...

    Consolidated Undrained Triaxial Testing of a Fine Grained Soil Introduction 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. Results To determine the value of Skempton’s B, the cell pressure was increased by 100kpa. The value of B indicates whether the sample is saturated or not; a value approaching 1 is expected for a fully saturated material. The change in pore water...

    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 analysis carried out in terms of total stress obtained from undrained test can be used to investigate the initial stability of the foundation of a structure or embankment on saturated clay. Alternatively...

From Table 1.0, the values for the undrained shear strength of the soil for the first trial using the medium vane, larger vane, and smaller vane are as follows: 18kN/m3, 17 kN/m3, and 19 kN/m3, respectively. It can be observed that the values are relatively large, this is because the soil sample is fully saturated. However, the results of each test using different vane sizes yielded different values. The differences in the values can be caused...

In this most stable energy state, all electrons are in the lowest energy levels available. When atoms or ions in the ground state are heated to high temperatures, some electrons may absorb enough energy to allow them to “jump” to higher energy levels. The element is then said to be in the “excited state”. This excited configuration is unstable,...
