Learning objectives of the presentation:
- Describe the boundary stress conditions for the unconfined compression test.
- Sketch the setup for a triaxial test showing applied loads and stresses.
- Draw a free body diagram of a soil specimen in a triaxial test.
- Given triaxial test data, plot both the total and effective Mohr-circles and determine the strength parameters.
