The direct shear test is a common approach to find the shear strength of granular soil mostly and less frequently the soil having a fraction of cohesive soil (Kutara and Ishizuka, 1982; Orense et al., 2004; and Ahmed et al., 2012).
This indicates the convergence of the clayey soil from its status of cohesive soil to the more frictional soil which is a positive sign while classifying the soil qualitatively.
