CONTRIBUTION TO THE THEORY OF COMPACTION. VIBRATING BEAMS /IN CZECH/

A VIBRATING BEAM WHICH APPLIES A UNIFORM COMPACTION PRESSURE ALONG ITS WHOLE LENGTH IS DESCRIBED. IF IT IS ASSUMED THAT THE SUBSOIL TO BE COMPACTED IS HOMOGENEOUS AND THAT THE BEAM HAS FLEXURAL RIGIDITY, THE REAL FLEXIBILITY OF THE BEAM IS ELIMINATED BY TRANSFERRING THE VIBRATIONS TO AN ELASTIC BEAM CONNECTED TO THE MAIN COMPACTION BEAM BY BEAMS OF SPRINGS. THE PROBLEM BECOMES THAT OF AN ELASTIC BEAM RESTING ON A DISCONTINUOUS BASE CONSISTING OF SPRINGS SPACED AT MINIMUM INTERVALS. BY ASSUMING THAT THE VIBRATING BEAM IS IN CONTACT WITH THE BASE WHICH PRESENTS AN ELASTIC LINEAR DEFORMATION, THE DYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF THE SYSTEM CAN BE ASSESSED. IT IS POSSIBLE TO APPLY A UNIFORM DYNAMIC PRESSURE ALONG THE WHOLE WORKING SURFACE BY DIRECTLY CONTROLLING THE OPERATION OF THE DEVICE. /RRL/
