Laboratory Instrument for Measuring Lateral Soil Pressure and Swelling Pressure
Lecturer, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg,
A new instrument which allows the measurement of lateral pressure and lateral swelling pressure of a soil sample in the laboratory, either with or without lateral strain, is presented. Results of tests carried out with this apparatus are discussed and compared with results of similar tests using other instruments.
soil tests, lateral forces, swelling pressure, earth pressure coefficients, lateral strain, odometer ring, coefficient of lateral earth pressure at rest (K0), sands, clays, cement meal, swell
