Abstract

The proposed paper describes some experimental procedures, used in (a) laboratory to recognize the energy-dissipating ability of soil and (b) in centrifuge to generate in-flight stress waves propagating through a centrifugal soil mass in order to investigate the efficiency of a stress wave mitigation barrier. The screening principle of this new type of energy-dissipating barrier has been suggested by the dissipative behavior of sandy soils, evidenced by infrared vibrothermography.

Efficiency of an Energy-Dissipating Barrier

St. Louis, Missouri

The proposed paper describes some experimental procedures, used in (a) laboratory to recognize the energy-dissipating ability of soil and (b) in centrifuge to generate in-flight stress waves propagating through a centrifugal soil mass in order to investigate the efficiency of a stress wave mitigation barrier. The screening principle of this new type of energy-dissipating barrier has been suggested by the dissipative behavior of sandy soils, evidenced by infrared vibrothermography.
