Abstract
A soil sample in the form of a cylinder 76.2 mm long, 38 mm diameter, in a water-tight rubber membrane, is subject to both lateral and axial stresses. The lateral pressure is applied by means of pressurized water and the axial pressure by a loading jack which applies the load by moving the sample upwards at a constant rate. At the point of soil failure let the lateral stress be ϭ and the axial stress ϭ.
