DYNAMIC SOIL PROPERTIES REQUIRED TO PREDICT THE DYNAMIC BEHAVIOR OF ELEVATED TRANSPORTATION STRUCTURES

In this investigation, dynamic triaxial tests were performed (1) to provide additional data on the dynamic properties of soils at the range of strain amplitudes generated under the foundations of poorly performing transportation structures, (2) to justify that dynamic soil properties determined by triaxial tests are appropriate to represent field conditions, and (3) to investigate the effect of testing procedures on dynamic soil properties, soil volume changes, and induced pore water pressures which influence the performance of elevated transportation structure foundations.
