Morgenstern, N. R., Grozic, J. L. H., Lefebvre, M. E., Robertson, P. K.
Abstract: Time domain reflectometry (TDR) can be used to determine the volumetric water content of soils. This note describes the utilization of a TDR miniprobe in triaxial testing. The TDR performance was examined with a series of tests that not only proved its reliability but also resulted in...

Abstract: The relationship between the shapes of the yield surface and the undrained effective stress path (UESP) of loose sand is investigated for triaxial loading conditions. It is shown that the UESP can be used in the construction of capped yield surfaces for sands. The stress ratio M-p...
