AbstractThis paper proposes a system of defining the major and minor principal stress increments in the Skempton's (1954) pore pressure equation. Using this system, a unified trend emerges for use in analysing published data that are seemingly conflicting. The system is also shown to give a consistent interpretation, both theoretically and experimentally, to triaxial stress states involving principal stress rotation. The practical implications resulting from the study of this system are examined.
