    Drained triaxial compression tests of Toyoura sand were carried out with conventional triaxial apparatus to evaluate the effects of sample slenderness and end conditions on triaxial compression strength. It was found that the maximum difference in the angle of internal friction φd for different test conditions employed was about ±1°. At the same time, the effects of the sample slenderness and each end condition on the strength value could be clearly identified.
