PARAMETER EFFECTS ON DYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF FROZEN SOILS-CLOSURE

The writer thanks Chae for his comments on the importance of frequency on the dynamic properties of frozen soils. The writer does not disagree with the theoretical considerations presented by Chae on the frequency dependence of dynamic properties of viscoelestic materials. The writer regrets overlooking the data presented by Chae (38) on the effect of frequency on the complex dynamic modulus and dynamic viscosity of processed snow. However, the writer is still of the opinion that the laboratory results to date for frozen soils indicate that the effect of frequency is "relatively unimportant" on dynamic stress-strain properties and "probably important" on energy obsorbing properties (Table 5). This assessment of the importance of frequency is, of course, relative to other parameters presented in Table 1. (Author)
