Abstract: Shear tests on undisturbed samples of clay at low normal effective stresses have proved to be useful in order to understand the actual nature of cohesion. Drammen plastic clay was considered to be a suitable material for this study as it is nonfissured and noncemented. Triaxial compression and extension tests without membranes were performed on this clay in the low stress range. The samples in compression failed along inclined planes, while those in extension failed nearly along a horizontal plane. It was fou…
