Abstract: A field geophysical investigation was performed to determine the shear and Young's moduli as a function of depth for a site in southern Ohio. This investigation included crosshole, downhole, surface refraction, and surface vibratory techniques. A supplementary set of laboratory resonant column tests was performed with the Drnevich resonant column device. Laboratory undisturbed specimens were excited in both the longitudinal and torsional modes to obtain both shear and Young's moduli as a function of strain. Both laboratory and field data are presented and compared.
