    Abstract

    A special triaxial apparatus allowing for a gammametric measurement of local density is used to study the influence of experimental conditions in triaxial tests. Compression tests performed along different stress paths and classical extension tests provide reliable results on the rheological behavior of sand up to large strains and permit characterization of the limit state of perfect plasticity.
