FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS OF STRESS PROPAGATION IN A CLAY

The dynamic properties of modulus of elasticity and viscosity of a clay soil under one-dimensional transient compressive pulse are evaluated with consideration of frequency effects using the finite element method. These properties, expressed as functions of frequency, are used for subsequent analyses of stress propagation using the normal mode method. One example problem is illustrated and the response is compared against the experimental results as well as the result without the consideration of frequency-dependency. /Author/
