DEFINITION:

Shear strength of soil is the maximum value of shear stress

that may be induced within its mass before the soil yields.

WHAT WE ARE GOING TO FIND IN THIS CHAPTER?

The value of:

= angle of friction (geseran)

C = cohesion (kejelekitan)

TYPES OF SHEAR TEST

i)Shear box test

ii)Triaxial compression test

Example 1:

A drained shear box test was carried out on a sandy clay and

yielded. The result as below:

Vertical load (kg) Dial gauge reading at proving

ring (1 part = 1m)

The size of shear box is 60mm x 60mm and coefficients is 20N/

1m.

Determine the shear strength parameters for this soil.

Example 3:

A drained triaxial compression test carried out on three

specimens of the same soil yielded the following results:

Test No. 1 2 3

Cell pressure (kN/m2) 100 200 300

Deviator stress at failure (kN/m2) 210 438 644

Find value of shear strength parameters.

10/12

Solution:

The principal stresses:-

Minor principal stress, 3= r = cell pressure

Major principal stress, 1= a= cell pressure + deviator stress

since uf= 0, Then , 1= 1and 3= 3

Test No. 1 2 3
