Several implications of an earlier analytical formulation for cohesionless soils are deduced for the triaxial test a compression test in the presence of a hydrostatic pressure. A specific form for the loading surface is adopted in order to illustrate certain difficulties associated with uniqueness and stability. In certain important respects the limited analytical and numerical results appear to agree with experience in soil mechanics testing.
