Tests were conducted with a Bevameter in three soils with six shear rings or annuli, three of which were modeled geometrically. Three grouser-to-outer diameter ratios with five loads in sand clay 11.1 water and with three loads in ships for shear torque, coefficient of internal friction, and cohesion were derived from a dimensional analysis of selected primary parameters. Tests were conducted to evaluate the unknowns in the general expressions. Modified author abstract
