    Abstract

    This study examines the use of the electrical conductivity method for assessment of internal strain distribution in a simple shear specimen as a result of the shearing process. In this proposed technique, which enables one to assess the strain distribution pattern in the specimen, it is shown from a limited study that the strains developed in the simple shear test are not uniformly distributed, as has been suggested by some researchers.
