Assignment Help Civil Engineering
##### Reference no: EM1382706

A direct shear test is performed on a saturated specimen of loose sand. A normal stress equal to 100 kPa is applied and a maximum shear stress of 75 kPa is measured in the shear test. Determine the principal stresses and the orientation of these planes.
