Unformatted text preview: drawn on the same page and similar axes aligned so that changes in e or p’ can be tracked in multiple graphs at the same time [see class notes for one possible arrangement]): A. The normal consolidation line and the unloading/reloading line B. The initial yield surface and critical state line for both compressional and extensional loading cases. (be certain to clearly identify values of M c and M e ) 3. For the conditions described in the previous problem, determine: A. The failure stresses for a consolidated, undrained (CU) triaxial compression test B. The failure stresses for a consolidated, drained (CD) triaxial compression test Also draw the effective stress paths for both tests....
