MEASUREING DYNAMIC INSITU GEOTECHNICAL PROPERTIES

A cylindrical dynamic in situ geotechnical material property test procedure is described. The test design and material property analysis are discussed. The analysis procedure involves iterating on the material properties use in one-dimensional and two-dimensional finite difference models of the test until the data measured in the experiment are reproduced. Typical results for several different soil types are presented and comparisons are made with laboratory measured material properties. /Author/
