    Abstract

    A new incremental loading device has been designed and fabricated to hydraulically control the axial stresses in triaxial compression and extension. Several different types of stress paths may be used during shear testing without the problems associated with conventional stress-controlled tests using dead weights. The versatility of the loading device is demonstrated by presenting the results of typical tests. Other potential uses of this test apparatus are also cited.
