    Abstract

    This test is intended for use in determining the ultimate shearing resistance of granular soils or granular-cohesive mixtures as determined by the relationship between normal and tangential forces at the point of shearing failure which is ordinarily designated by the tangent of the angle of internal friction, φ.
