The angle of repose--the maximum angle that allows a heap of soil to remain stable without failing--is an important property of soils and affects the safety and costs of projects such as slopes or retaining walls. But several methods have been proposed to measure it, which might produce confusion in practice and research. The angles of repose obtained using six different methods for six different sands are compared here in order to quantify and explain the differences and determine some
