Triaxial Shear Test

Triaxial Shear Test

Introduction to Geotechnical Engineering Learning objectives of the presentation:  Describe the boundary stress conditions for the unconfined compression test. Sketch the setup for a triaxial test showing applied loads and stresses. Draw a free body diagram of a soil specimen in a triaxial test. Given triaxial test data, plot both the total and effective Mohr-circles
