simple shear

[′sim·pəl ′shir]
(geophysics)
Strain caused by differential movements on one set of parallel planes which results in internal rotation of fabric elements.
(mathematics)
A transformation that corresponds to a shearing motion in which a coordinate axis in the plane or a coordinate plane in space does not move, having the form x ′ = x, y ′ = ax + y, z ′ = z, where a is a constant, for a suitable choice of axes.

There are three kinds of approaches on studying dynamic properties of coarse granular soils in laboratory: (1) test wave velocity and attenuation properties based on wave theory (ultrasonic and pulse technique); (2) test soil coefficients of stiffness and damping based on vibrate theory (resonant column triaxial test); (3) obtain the relationship of stress-strain directly based on cyclic loading tests such as cyclic triaxial test, hollow torsional test, simple shear test, torsinal simple shear test etc.
Analogous to the stress relaxation modulus curve, a plot of the storage and loss moduli measured as a function of applied frequency under strain amplitudes small enough to maintain a linear viscoelastic response can also provide an illustration of the zones of viscoelastic behavior described earlier for simple shear measurements (refs.
