Abstract : The laboratory procedure most commonly used for strength determination is the triaxial compression test. The relationship between data obtained with this test procedure and the in-situ strength of a soil under comparable deformation conditions (i.e., axially symmetric strain and same orientation of principal stresses) will be the subject of this report.
