Shear strengths of GCLs

Description

Data sets covers the shear strengths from geosynthetics

Arguments

cohesion

a numeric for the cohesion, in kPa

friction angle

a numeric for the inner friction angle, in degree

Details

The data set contains several columns : cohesion, friction angle, unit grivity, investigator, published year, rock name.

Value

Returns a matrix that contains above values for each GCL included in the data set.
