Document Type: Journal Paper


This note presents results of 120 dynamic triaxial tests performed on smples of medium dense hydraulic fill obtained from several old dams located in California.s Sierra Nevada Mountains. Although the overall sample represents a range of soil classifications, the generally similar origin and method of placement provides a basis for considering them as a special soil type and for inspecting the test results for general dynamic strength characteristics.
