Results of influences of JRC on b m - T relation in the CNS tests. The permeability characteristics in the u-T relations change greatly before and after reaching the Mohr-Coulomb failure curve. In the b m -T relation, where b m was small, there exists a range in which T was not proportional to the cube of b m . This seemed to be caused by the occurrence of channeling phenomenon at small b m values.
