    The triaxial test also allows radial strain of the sample under load, a feature not present in consolidation tests performed with oedometers. Therefore the triaxial test may be useful in identifying deformations where the Poisson Ratio of the material is of importance. 2. SAMPLE PREPARATION Samples of cohesive soil are normally taken from. A total of 6 two-way non-symmetrical undrained cyclic triaxial tests, as tabulated in Table 1, have been analysed and discussed here. All the discussed tests were tested at ψ* > 0 and showed cyclic instability behaviour which triggered in the compression side of stress space. Tests wereFile Size: KB.

It is used for students who want to know more about triaxial tests. Saturation of specimens was carried out using stepwise back pressure technique in the triaxial equipment. Similarly, the specimen was saturated in two steps, initial and final. In the beginning, saturation was started with a small cell pressure (20 kPa) to remove the entrapped air.

The back pressure saturation method is commonly adopted in triaxial tests to increase the saturation degree of samples. But the value of the back pressure is not stipulated in Chinese standards. Effects of swelling during saturation in triaxial tests on compressible Chicago glacial clays are assessed from results of triaxial compression tests on block samples cut from excavations, thin.

In triaxial testing of stabilized soils, the applied back pressure chosen for the tests may affect the degree of saturation and in turn also the results obtained.

A number of triaxial tests have been performed using different back pressures in order to study the effect on measured shear strengths of. • Increase of back pressure to force air into solution. Note that a significant period of time, and/or back pressures in the range of kPa or above, may be required to fully saturate a specimen, particularly if de-aired water is not used.

The consolidated undrained/ drained triaxial compression tests are normally performed in several stages, involving the successive saturation, consolidation and shearing of each of three Size: KB. The soil triaxial test is one of the most common testing methods for determining the shear strength of soils.

Many different factors affect the shear strength of soils, including the amount of air and water in the soil, so the triaxial test was developed to calculate the shear strength of the soil in.

Cyclic triaxial strength tests may be performed at a single effective confining pressure, usually equal to kN/m 2 [ lb/in. 2], or alternate pressures as appropriate on isotropically consolidated specimens to compare cyclic strength results for a particular soil type with that of other soils, Ref (2).

The results of a series of large-scale triaxial tests performed on dense, prismatic gravel specimens, with a height of 50 cm and a cross-section of 23 cm×23 cm, are described. The specimens were prepared at a density equal to approximately 95% of the maximum density at the optimum moisture by: A triaxial shear test is a common method to measure the mechanical properties of many deformable solids, especially soil (e.g., sand, clay) and rock, and other granular materials or are several variations on the test.

In a triaxial shear test, stress is applied to a sample of the material being tested in a way which results in stresses along one axis being different from the.

The aim of saturation is to dissolve remaining air in the pore water. Air in the pores corrupts the results of the compression test.

To achieve saturation, the cell pressure and the pore pressure are increased simulta-neously. The value of necessary satur ation pore pressure depends on the initial saturation (S 0) of the material tested: S 0 = (wρ.
