Abstract : Tests were conducted with a Bevameter in three soils with six shear rings or annuli, three of which were modeled geometrically. Three grouser-to-outer diameter ratios with five loads in sand clay (11.1% water) and with three loads in ships for shear torque, coefficient of internal friction, and cohesion were derived from a dimensional analysis of selected primary parameters. Tests were conducted to evaluate the unknowns in the general expressions. (Modified author abstract)
