Abstract

In the present article, the results of cyclic triaxial tests conducted on Solani sand, collected from the bed of Solani River near Roorkee, are presented. Results of strain controlled undrained tests carried out as per ASTM D3999 for determinations of dynamic soil properties are presented. The variations of shear modulus with shear strain are reported. Remoulded samples were prepared with different percentage of silt contents and tested. The effects of silt content on shear modulus of Solani sand at different shear strain are evaluated. This effect is studied at two relative densities. It was found that the effect of silt content is significant on both shear modulus and damping ratio.

Effects of Silt Content on Dynamic Properties of Solani Sand

Chicago, Illinois

In the present article, the results of cyclic triaxial tests conducted on Solani sand, collected from the bed of Solani River near Roorkee, are presented. Results of strain controlled undrained tests carried out as per ASTM D3999 for determinations of dynamic soil properties are presented. The variations of shear modulus with shear strain are reported. Remoulded samples were prepared with different percentage of silt contents and tested. The effects of silt content on shear modulus of Solani sand at different shear strain are evaluated. This effect is studied at two relative densities. It was found that the effect of silt content is significant on both shear modulus and damping ratio.
