during the triaxial test I should maintain the same lateral stress value 
during the analysis, while the axial stress is increasing. The fact is that 
from my simulation actually I see from the results that the lateral stress is 
not kept constant, but it is increasing. How can I fix it? Am I wrong 

Thanks a lot.

Nejib, I can confirm that with the boolean 
autoCompressionActivation at the false value you stop the simulation right 
after the isotropic compression phase.
