83 The effective stress path is also the sameas if we had performed a conventional test. The pore water pressures however are lower by the amount corresponding to the difference between the total stress paths, ie the difference between the applied values of average total stress p. This is the amount by which the cell pressure was reduced to maintain p = constant in the non-

Unformatted text preview: standard test described in this question, q/3 = 64.3 kPa. Thus the pore water pressure that would have been observed in a conventional drained shear test carried out at a constant cell pressure of 400 kPa is 183.2 + 64.3 = 247.5 kPa....
