Abstract

The shear modulus of a soft, high-plastic clay under dynamic loading conditions was studied. The initial shear modulus was determined by cross-hole and down-hole tests in-situ and by resonant column tests in the laboratory. The reduction of shear modulus with increasing shear strain amplitude was determined in-situ by dynamic loading screw-plate tests and in the laboratory by high amplitude resonant column tests. Field and laboratory test results are compared.

Dynamic Deformation Characteristics of a Soft Clay
