CHARACTERISTICS AND MECHANISM OF VIBRATORY DENSIFICATION OF SAND AND ROLE OF ACCELERATION

Vertical vibration tests with a rigid mould as well as dynamic and cyclic simple shear tests were conducted on sand to investigate the characteristics and mechanism of densification. Vertical acceleration was applied to the sample in the vertical vibration tests, but the dynamic stress was very small relative to the confining stress. Dynamic and cyclic simple shear tests were conducted by using the same simple shear apparatus. Both dynamic shear stress and horizontal acceleration were given to the sample in the dynamic simple shear tests. Cyclic simple shear tests were conducted under two conditions to investigate the role of acceleration in the densification of sand by vibration. /TRRL/
