    Abstract

    The existing contradictory evidence supporting various failure criteria for soils is briefly summarized. The results of triaxial extension and compression tests are presented, in which an attempt is made to measure the variations of strain throughout the specimens. While the over all average behavior of the specimens appears to favor the Mohr-Coulomb criterion, more detailed investigation suggests that the extended von Mises, or possibly the extended Tresca, criteria are more relevant.
