Abstract

The applicability of various types of constitutive models to estimating dynamic material properties for soils from the results of static shear tests is briefly reviewed. The primary obstacle to making such predictions is the limiting resolution of conventional static tests. A simple procedure using empirical relationships to interpolate beyond the limit of the static shear tests is suggested for use in preliminary analysis and in cases where cyclic test data is not available.

Estimating Dynamic Properties from Static Tests

St. Louis, Missouri

The applicability of various types of constitutive models to estimating dynamic material properties for soils from the results of static shear tests is briefly reviewed. The primary obstacle to making such predictions is the limiting resolution of conventional static tests. A simple procedure using empirical relationships to interpolate beyond the limit of the static shear tests is suggested for use in preliminary analysis and in cases where cyclic test data is not available.
