Document Type: Journal Paper


Phenomenological theory is developed in order to study propagation of unidimensional compression waves in columns of sand; medium of theory is treated as elastic-plastic continuum; theory gives satisfactory agreement with experiments on stress propagation in 2 dry sands and with published experimental results.
