Strength and deformation behaviour of sand under general stress system

Drained shear tests have been conducted on fully saturated ottawa sand specimens under axisymmetric compression and extension and general stress system. All the tests have been conducted in universal triaxial apparatus. The specimens have been prepared under different inclinations to study the effect of structural anisotropy. The various factors which affect the strength and deformation properties under general stress system are discussed. The effect of intermediate principal stress on peak strength, linear and volumetric strains is discussed (a).
