    A laboratory instrument, called the rod shear device, was developed to measure the shear transfer characteristics of a model pile inserted into a clay sample. The apparatus was designed to accommodate soil samples recovered from field investigations without extruding the specimen from its sampling tube and thus avoiding disturbance caused by stress relief and handling. A rod shear testing procedure is recommended for monotonic and cyclic loading tests. Typical results are presented.
