Abstract : Several different plastic soil mechanics theories are developed. The general question of testing these theories is discussed and specialized to the ordinary triaxial type of testing situation. An extension is made of the theory developed in connection with the triaxial type of testing situation to include the perfect plasticity case. An example is given in which the theory is applied to one case of a soil sample measurement made with a Hveem stabilometer.
