Abstract

Over the past quarter century many testing methods have been used to determine soil properties for dynamic analysis. Most methods had been established by the time of the writer's review (Woods, 1978), and since then, changes have been mostly evolutionary. Many field and laboratory techniques are represented in papers submitted to this conference and these are reviewed, but additional citations from literature in the intervening years has been included for completeness. No claim is made that all pertinent literature is included, but that most methods of field and laboratory testing methods are covered with representative citations.

Field and Laboratory Determination of Soil Properties at Low and High Strains

St. Louis, Missouri

Over the past quarter century many testing methods have been used to determine soil properties for dynamic analysis. Most methods had been established by the time of the writer's review (Woods, 1978), and since then, changes have been mostly evolutionary. Many field and laboratory techniques are represented in papers submitted to this conference and these are reviewed, but additional citations from literature in the intervening years has been included for completeness. No claim is made that all pertinent literature is included, but that most methods of field and laboratory testing methods are covered with representative citations.
