CYCLIC SHEAR RESISTANCE OF NONCOHESIVE SOILS-DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

The discussers describe an approach, similar to the one described in the paper, which was used by them to evaluate the results of undrained cyclic triaxial tests on modeled Orville gravel. The results are summarized and comments are made on the importance of sample boundary conditions in relation to horizontal soil deposits. The author in his closure addresses the issues raised. The author observes that induced pore pressure can transiently exceed the residual value, even in the case of dense gravels, and comments on torsional tests on bottom cylindrical samples.
