A comparison of in situ determined and laboratory determined vibratory, shear, and compression moduli for 13 sites within the United States and one site in the Marshall Islands indicates...

Torsion of Nonhomogeneous Solid
A solution is given for the Reissner-Sagoci problem for a nonhomogeneous half-space and semi-infinite cylinder in each of which the shear modulus is assumed to vary with the depth. The...

Expansion of Cavities in Infinite Soil Mass
A general solution is presented of the problem of expansion of spherical and cylindrical cavities in an infinite soil mass. The soil is assumed to behave as an ideal elastic-plastic solid,...

Behavior of Laterally Loaded Piles: III—Socketed Piles
An analysis is made of the working-load behavior of a single laterally loaded pile, the tip of which is socketed into rock underlying the soil layer, for various combinations of boundary...

In Situ Shear Wave Velocity by Cross-Hole Method
The cross-hole seismic survey technique is presented as a means of determining in situ shear wave velocity. By this method the travel time for body waves to travel between two points in...

Shear Modulus and Damping in Soils: Measurement and Parameter Effects (Terzaghi Leture)
Based on numerous tests on a spectrum of disturbed and undisturbed soils, the shear modulus decreases and the damping ratio increases very rapidly with increasing strain amplitude. The...

Shear Modulus and Damping in Soils
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...
