The Measurement of Soil Properties in The Triaxial Test

The part played by laboratory testing in the successful application of soil mechanics to civil engineering problems depends both on the uniformity of the natural strata and on the experience and skill of the engineer. In certain classes of problem, laboratory tests serve mainly to illustrate the principles on which a judgment may be based or to set broad limits to the probable behaviour of the soil. In many cases, however, the uniformity of the soil conditions or the importance of the project will justify a more accurate analysis, particularly if this is coupled with field measurement of the pore pressure— the factor most difficult to assess from laboratory data alone
