Summary:A high-temperature triaxial compression device was designed, fabricated, assembled and used for testing. Laboratory tests show that when the temperature is increased under drained conditions, the sample consolidates and the undrained shear strength of the soil increases. This increase in shear strength is directly proportional to the change in void ratio.—Modified author abstract.
