RECENT USA RESEARCH ON SOIL STRENGTH AND DEFORMATION CHARACTERISTICS UNDER DYNAMIC LOADING CONDITIONS

A REVIEW OF RESEARCH IS PRESENTED ON THE STRENGTH AND DEFORMATION CHARACTERISITCS OF SOILS UNDER TRANSIENT, REPETITIVE AND EARTHQUAKE TYPE LOADING. THE INCREASE IN STRENGTH OF CLAYS AND DRY SAND UNDER TRANSIENT LOADING CONDITIONS WAS ILLUSTRATED BY TEST DATA FROM STUDIES AS HARVARD UNIVERSITY AND M.I.T. THE MECHANICS OF STRENGTH MOVILIZATION IN SATURATED SANDS UNDER TRANSIENT LOADING WERE ILLUSTRATED BY INVESTIGATIONS CONDUCTED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA. RECENT STUDIES IN CALIFORNIA HAVE SHOWN THAT IN CASE OF PAVEMENTS NOT ONLY MUST ACCUMULATIVE PAVEMENT DEFORMATION BE CONSIDERED BUT ALSO THE POSSIBILITY OF FATIGUE FAILURES IN THE SURFACING RESULTING FROM EXCESSIVE RESILIENT DEFORMATIONS. INVESTIGATIONS OF THE PLASTIC DEFORMATION OF COMPACTED CLAYS UNDER REPEATED LOADING WERE DESCRIBED. STUDIES OF SOIL STRENGTH UNDER EARTHQUAKE LOADING CONDITIONS WERE DESCRIBED.
