Abstract

Four kind of carbonate sands from offshore seabed together with LB sand of U.K and Fujian sand of China were tested with the Resonant Column method. The results show that the stress strain relationship in the condition of small strain can be represented with the hyperbolic model. The modulus is less than that of general sand. The cementing strength between particles of carbonate sands is weak. The breakage of particles is easy after disturbed and the density, therefore, will be increased. These properties should be further studied for engineering purpose.

The Dynamic Properties of Carbonate Sands from Seabed
