Seeing the better ILSS value for 8-ply composite and for acid de-sized CFs, it is chosen as standard for further comparative studies to reveal the effect of time and voltage for EPD of MWCNTs on CFs against

shear strength of CF/EP composites, shown in Fig.

Investigate the correlation between

shear strength, water content and electrical resistivity (2 probe method) of untreated and treated ultra-soft soil.

Table 3 shows the mean values of

shear strength and the coefficients of variation for both species.

Similarly, the residual

shear strength increases with the infill thickness ratio.

The

shear strength parameters of mixtures, such as the cohesion and the angles of internal friction, were determined to further analyze of the effect of [C.sub.STC] on the

shear strength of mixtures.

As it can be seen from Figure 4, (1) the principal stress difference and axial strain curves of the flax fiber-reinforced clay are influenced by confining pressure, namely, the confining pressure affects the

shear strength and deformation resistance of flax fiber-reinforced clay.

Shear strength parameters under different matric suction are presented in Table 6.

shear strength parameters lower than the said threshold are deemed as weak.

* The maximum tensile

shear strength observed for ultrasonic welded aluminium joint is 61.3 MPa.

To calculate the

shear strength, the shear reinforcement amount ([A.sub.f] x [f.sub.fu] or [A.sub.v] x [f.sub.y]) is represented by the product of the tensile strength and the shear reinforcement cross-sectional area existing within the critical section.

(i) In scheme I, there are 4 groups to test the

shear strength of pure cement grout concretion under different water cement ratio.

Series of direct shear tests were conducted on reconstituted samples at in-situ landslide matrix material density by varying percent saturation to evaluate its likely effect on the mobilized

shear strength. Finally the Slope/W software was utilized to calculate the Factor of Safety (FOS) along the probable surface failure, by in putting the

shear strength parameters corresponding to different degrees of saturation.
