DETERMINATION OF THE COMPRESSIBILITY OF PEATY SOILS BY SEISMIC NON DESTRUCTIVE TESTING

OPREDELENIE SZHIMAEMOSTI BOLOTNYKH GRUNTOV METODOM SEJSMOPROVSVECHIVANIYA

A method is described for the study of the physical and chemical properties of soft saturated soils, based on the variation in the velocity of transverse seismic waves as a function of the density of the soil and its compressibility. By means of the statistical processing of test results, correlations between the compressibility and acoustic rigidity of peat and organic soil with different moisture contents has been determined. The paper describes the apparatus used for this seismic testing process. It is demonstrated that the method proposed makes it possible to determine the compressibility of in-situ peat without taking a sample. (TRRL)
