Accurate determination of soil parameters is of great importance in the analysis of landslides, which is a common type of natural disaster. In the solution of landslide problems, the direct shear box test is generally preferred as a laboratory test type for the determination of the shear strength parameters of soils. However, the need for drained parameters in long-term problems reveals a disadvantageous aspect of this experiment, especially in clayey soils, because pore water pressures cannot be measured in the direct shear box test, which is widely used in the laboratory to determine the shear strength of the soils.
Multistage triaxial compression tests used to obtain shear strength parameters in the laboratory are advantageous compared to conventional triaxial compression tests because of the time and financial concerns, as well as the avoidance of differences between the samples to be tested. In this study, a new method was tried in addition to the methods used to obtain shear strength parameters with consolidated-drained multistage tests in normally consolidated clayey soils and the results were promising. Thus, since it increases the usability of multistage tests, it will be helpful in terms of preventing possible disasters by enabling analysis in many more sites.
