Below are the first 10 and last 10 pages of uncorrected machine-read text (when available) of this chapter, followed by the top 30 algorithmically extracted key phrases from the chapter as a whole.
Intended to provide our own search engines and external engines with highly rich, chapter-representative searchable text on the opening pages of each chapter. Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

For the confined tests with the ITC machine, the data from one sample was not included in the analysis be- Unconfined and confined flow number tests were performed cause a leak developed in the membrane resulting in loss of with each machine at a temperature of 50C. The unconfined confining stress and early failure of the specimen. tests used a deviatioric stress of 140 kPa. The confined tests Figure 20 and Figure 21 present repeated load permanent used a confining stress of 140 kPa and a deviatoric stress of deformation curves based on the average of the data for the 965 kPa. Four specimens were tested in each machine. The samples tested in each machine. The complete database of the tests were continued to 10,000 cycles or a permanent strain of permanent deformation responses is presented in Appendix D. 4.0 3.5 3.0 Permanent Strain, % 2.5 ITC 2.0 IPC MDTS 1.5 1.0 0.5 0.0 0 2000 4000 6000 8000 10000 12000 Load Cycles Figure 21.
