Abstract: The soil stress-strain relations of most interest for blast-oriented problem analyses are those obtained from tests in which controlled impulsive stresses are applied to soil specimens confined so as to deform in an undrained state of uniaxial strain. Unique uniaxial strain test equipment and procedures currently in use at the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station for conducting both fundamental research studies and investigations of field sites are briefly described herein. Special procedures for producing laboratory-prepared and undisturbed test specimens of high quality are also described along with test results obtained from a wide variety of soil types.
