Determine the shearing resistance of sand, Civil Engineering

In a drained triaxial compression test, a saturated specimen of cohesionless sand fails at a deviator stress of 450 kN/m2 when the cell pressure was 135 kN/m2.

Search the effective angle of shearing resistance of sand and the angle of inclination of the failure plane with the horizontal.
