Abstract

The steady state of deformation was analyzed for a clayey sand. The use of lubricated end platens was evaluated and proved to reduce the scatter in steady state data. The effect of different data corrections in a steady state analysis was also evaluated. For this investigation the parabolic area assumption better approximated the deformed specimen shape than the right cylinder assumption. It was concluded that the use of different area corrections greatly influences the slope and position of the steady state line.
