Abstract : The present way of determination of stress-strain parameters in soils by means of rectangular or round loading areas is time consuming. To provide a quicker and continuous method of operation, the use of rigid wheels instead of plates has been proposed. When towing such wheels under varying load, and measuring the corresponding sinkage, this new method of determining the discussed soil parameters was successfully tested in dry and wet sand.
