Each time the sample was transferred to direct shear apparatus and applied predetermined air pressure until the suction arrived at equilibrium (generally last 12 hours), then the vertical load was applied (maintaining for 12 hours) with keeping the air pressure and vertical stress constant and then be sheared.
