A simple stress path analog for the triaxial test.

Y. P. Vaid, D. Negussey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A simple pneumatic stress path triaxial testing device has been designed. The components of the apparatus and the operation of the system is described. Typical results of drained tests on a sand are presented in order to illustrate the capabilities of the device as a stress path analog and to highlight briefly the stress path dependence of soil behaviour.-Authors
