This study considers the stability of frictional materials displaying a nonassociated flow rule. Critical stress levels below which stability can be theoretially assured are discussed with respect to experimental results obtained from triaxial compression tests conducted by Lade et al. (1987). The study found that the theoretical critical stress level values are in the vicinity of the maximum stress levels experienced in the experiments. Details of the study are described, and the study findings are discussed.
