DescriptionA new method for obtaining triaxial stress versus strain data is presented. The method tests cubic specimens and can provide constitutive data along three mutually perpendicular axes. Issues of removing the effects of boundary conditions in the proposed device are discussed. Two devices were constructed and used to obtain triaxial stress versus strain data on paperboard and on redwood samples. Representative data are shown.
