This method of testing enables the determination of the strength parameters of soils. The methods described are the consolidated undrained triaxial compression test--with or without pore pressure measurements--and the unconfined compressive strength test. The parameters obtained are the angle of internal friction, ∅, the cohesion, c, and the unconfined compressive strength. The values so obtained may be employed in the design and analysis of earth structures--with consideration of the accepted criteria of stability and safety.
