Abstract: Equations and graphs for the determination of shear modulus and damping of soils, for use in design problems involving repeated loading or vibration of soils, are presented. These equations and graphs are based on numerous laboratory tests on both remolded and undisturbed cohesive soils and on clean sands. Comparison of the measured and computed values shows good agreement. An example problem showing how these equations and curves are used is given.
