- 1 Faculty of Mechanical Engineering,“Gheorghe Asachi” Technical University of Iaşi, Iasi, Romania
The paper presents a review of the most important triaxial testing machines and triaxial specimens from literature. It also includes a finite element analysis of a triaxial specimen. The main feature that is studied refers to the geometry of the specimen so that it is obtained a state of stress as favourable as possible for the fracture to occur.
