POST-CYCLIC STRENGTH OF MARINE LIMESTONE SOILS

In order to determine the strength capable of being mobilized by cohesive marine limestone soils during earthquake loading, a testing program was designed to evaluate the static shear strength of these soils following cyclic loads. The residual static strengths were compared to the conventional strength static envelope to determine the loss of strength due to cyclic effects. Residual strengths were also compared to the induced earthquake stresses to indicate the capacity of the soils to resist the earthquake loading. /Author/
