Description: Technical Report
Abstract: This report presents a collection of data from laboratory mechanical property tests on dry Reid-Bedford Model sand and saturated MISERS BLUFF sand which were conducted by the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station in support of a variety of projects since 1972. The data have been assembled for use in evaluating the ability of mathematical constitutive models to simulate the behavior of soils to complex dynamic loadings produced by both explosive- and earthquake-induced ground shock. Reid-Bedford Model sand is a fine-grained, uniform sand obtained along the Big Black River in Mississippi; the data presented are for air-dried specimens remolded and tested at a dry density of approximately 1.65 g/cc. MISERS BLUFF sand is a medium- to coarse-grained, silty sand obtained at Planet Ranch, Arizona; the data presented are for tests performed on back-pressure saturated specimens initially remolded to a dry density of approximately 1.72 g/cc. Laboratory preparation and test procedures are documented and the data for both sands are presented.
