Abstract: The behavior of gravelly soils has been the focus of much research in recent years. Large-scale penetration and triaxial tests, shear-wave velocity measurements, insitu freezing and sampling, shear modulus and damping ratio measurements, improved membrane compliance mitigation, and other innovations have helped improve our understanding of the behavior of gravelly soils. This proceedings, Static and Dynamic Properties of Gravelly Soils, contains papers presented at sessions held in conjunction with the ASCE Annual Convention held in San Diego, California, October 23-27, 1995. They deal with the behavior of gravelly soils. It is hoped that some of the work presented here will advance the state of knowledge in the area of gravelly soil behavior.
