Abstract: This report, Volume I, is concerned with the load-deformation characteristics of two field soils under confining pressures up to 10,000 psi. A wide variety of stress states were imposed upon partially saturated compacted specimens of soil which were obtained from two test sites, one in the United States and the other in Canada. The tests were performed with a high-pressure triaxial cell and the stress states included hydrostatic compression, triaxial shear, constant stress ratio tests, and no-lateral-strain tests. Cyclic loading was accomplished during many of the tests. Results of tests are presented in the form of various types of stress-strain curves in Volume II. Numerical tabulation of data is presented in Volume III. A lateral deformeter was developed for determining lateral deformations of the cylindrical soil specimens during both the compression and the shear stages of loading. The instrument consists basically of strain-gaged, cantilevered springs which bear against the specimen mid-height. The use of the instrument allowed the determination of the bulk modulus of the partially saturated soils as well as the control over the lateral dimensions of the specimens during the loading.
