Analysis of triaxial test results
MetadataShow full item record
In order to build a computer-based aid for triaxial results, analysing it is necessary to find ways of putting the human expertise in a computer representation. This paper presents two mathematical approaches to determining the soil shear strength parameters (c and<p) from triaxial test results. The two resulting sets of equations were tested against each other and they showed very close agreement. In addition to this, they were found to be consistent with published results against which they were also tested. One of the methods produced equations which are simple enough to be used in hand calculations but the other requires the use of a computer.
