    Abstract

    Constitutive equations for the thermomechanical behavior of salt must accurately model material behavior when all three principal stresses are independent. Conventional triaxial compression and extension tests measure material response for stress states in which two of the principal stresses are equal. A computer-controlled, servohydraulic system is described for testing hollow cylinder specimens at stress states in which the principal stresses are controlled independently. Results of validation tests are given to show that the test system provides accurate measurements of the behavior of salt.
