    Abstract

    A triaxial testing procedure is presented for measuring the increase in shear strength resulting from soil suction in an unsaturated soil. Necessary modifications on a conventional triaxial cell are described. A simple graphical method is presented to interpret the test data in accordance with the shear strength equation for unsaturated soils.
