ANALYSIS OF CYCLIC SIMPLE SHEAR TEST DATA

Cyclic simple shear test data obtained from the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI) apparatus were examined and interpreted to better relate them to actual soil behavior. The study was made using a linear elastic finite element analysis. Available data for a medium dense sand, a soft clay and a chemically stabilized fine sand were analyzed. It has been shown that for dynamic response determination, the NGI simple shear device may introduce an error ranging from 5 to 15% in shear modulus measurements. /Author/
