Abstract

This paper compares the cyclic strengths of soils from different methods using intensive investigations at a recent alluvial site on the southwest Taiwan. Generally speaking, the cyclic shear strengths deduced from different methods exhibit the following trend: Block sample > Tube sample ↔ SPT -N (Standard Penetration Test) method > seismic Vs method > CPT-qc (Cone Penetration Test) method.

Study on Cyclic Shear Strength of Soils from Different Methods

St. Louis, Missouri

This paper compares the cyclic strengths of soils from different methods using intensive investigations at a recent alluvial site on the southwest Taiwan. Generally speaking, the cyclic shear strengths deduced from different methods exhibit the following trend: Block sample > Tube sample ↔ SPT -N (Standard Penetration Test) method > seismic Vs method > CPT-qc (Cone Penetration Test) method.
