Document Type: Journal Paper


Investigation of stresses and deformations occurring in test specimen, during triaxial compression test, used to determine shearing strength of soil; influence of end restraint on cylindrical test specimens exerted by stiff loading plates with any degree of roughness, is considered by introduction of simplified roughness function; numerical solutions for test specimen with length-diam ratio of 2.0 and for maximum roughness of plates.
