Abstract:

The purposes of the investigation were to study the behavior of cohesionless materials when tested under plane strain conditions and to compare the test results with those obtained from the more commonly used triaxial compression apparatus. A comparative study of plane strain test results conducted in previous investigations on different kinds of cohesionless materials was also made in an effort to define the overall behavior of cohesionless materials under plane strain conditions.
