The dynamic shear modulus and damping characteristics of 2 soils, a uniform sand and a silty clay, treated with Type 1 portland cement are determined by the resonant column technique. Test variables studied are cement content, confining pressure, shear-strain amplitude, and moisture content. The dynamic shear modulus and damping of both uniform sand and silty clay can be greatly increased by adding a small amount of cement.
