dc.descriptionAbstract: Report describes three types of constrained compression tests, and results thereof, on dry sands. In most tests, lateral confinement was provided by a ring boundary that inhibits radial displacements while offering little resistance to axial strains. In addition, comparisons are made between results of tests in this boundary and those in the United Research Service fluid boundary. Stress-time and displacement-time records obtained from interior points along the column, indicating shocking-up, are included. Predicted peak particle velocities and shock-wave propagation velocities based on the stress-strain data are presented and compared with measured values.-
