Damping capacity of soil during dynamic loading. Report 2, Review of laboratory methods of determining damping
Marcuson, William F. (William Frederick)
Miscellaneous PaperAbstract: In predicting the response of soils subjected to dynamic loads, the pertinent soil properties must be known. This report discusses the various laboratory methods for determining the damping value for a soil, resonant column testing, cyclic triaxial testing, and uniaxial-triaxial stress-strain testing. The procedures for calculating the damping values are given.
