Data sets covers the shear strengths from geosynthetics

`cohesion` |
a numeric for the cohesion, in kPa |

`friction angle` |
a numeric for the inner friction angle, in degree |

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

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