1. Convert the dial readings to the appropriate vertical deformation and compressive load units by multiplying with respective least counts.
2. Calculate vertical strain, corrected cross-sectional area and then compressive stress.
4. Draw a Mohr circle using qu, and determine undrained shear strength su = undrained cohesion cu = qu/2
5. Compute the water content, w (%).
