EQUIPMENT AND PROCEDURES FOR TRIAXIAL TESTING OF SUBGRADE SOILS

One of the aims of the laboratory twinning project "A European Approach to Road Pavement Design" was to develop standard test procedures for repeated load triaxial testing of subgrade soils. For this purpose, repeatability tests were carried out to compare the triaxial equipment and test procedure of the four participating laboratories. This paper presents the reults of these tests, and concludes by some recommendations for cyclic triaxial tests of subgrade soils. (A) For the covering abstract see IRRD 883133.
