The shear stress-time curve has a larger stress drop after the peak, and the shear stress is not directly down to the end but shows a gradual downward trend because the shear failure
of rock also needs to overcome the friction force on the shear surface.
Furthermore, many studies conducted by several researchers [5-13] on shear behavior provide adequate information to ensure that shear failure
can be avoided.
is mainly caused by the pressure exerted on the backfill by the top plate exceeding the compressive strength of the backfill.
Failure occurs along one shear failure
surface when the moisture content is low and, in most cases, the shear failure
surface is parallel to the shear angle.

Mode Materials," SAE Int.
Unlike flexural failure, shear failure
can occur suddenly and without warning.
The punching shear failure
of the slab-to-column or the footing-to-column connection is undesirable, since it results in a brittle and catastrophic failure of the concrete structures.
envelops go upward drift with matric suction increasing, which is shown in Figure 2(a).Simultaneously, Figures 2(a), 2(b), and 2(c) show that the shear strengths are not the same, although the matric suction and normal stress are completely identical.
However, the breakwaters built on seabed are vulnerable to the liquefaction and the shear failure
of seabed foundation [1-2].
The results of experiments show that the shear failure
of reinforced concrete (RC) slender beams without stirrups is always governed by diagonal tension failure mode rather than compression failure mode.
However, the large percentage of shear failure
when stressed parallel to face veneer grain hindered an accurate determination of true MOR.
Core shear failure
, when the shear stress, [[tau].sub.c], equals the yield strength of the core in shear, [[tau].sup.*.sub.C]:
