Summary:A stretching experiment, using a three-layer wet clay cake on a deformation table in which the strains associated with boudins were studied, is reported. The strain field due to the boudinage is said to be in general agreement with previous results of stress obtained in theoretical and experimental studies. [M.E.J.]
