Random and sinusoidal loading conditions were used in this study to determine the soil moduli and the damping ratios of cohesive soil samples. Test results showed some differences between the dynamic properties obtained from the conventional sinusoidal loading and those obtained from the random loading. Based on the obtained results, equations were suggested to overcome the variations in the dynamic soil properties.
