The failure conditions in an Ottawa sand are studied by means of a new soil test box and stress control device. Failure envelopes for the soil in a medium dense and medium loose state are obtained and plotted on an octahedral plane. The relation between the failure stress and the void ratio of the soil is also obtained for the soil under triaxial compression and triaxial extension stress states.
