Project: In situ determination of the small strain material damping of soils

project duration
01-JAN-06 – 31-DEC-09
abstract
In this research several interpretation methods for the determination of the small strain dynamic soil parameters (with emphasis on material damping) out of in situ tests (SASW, SCPT…) will be tested on numerical synthetic signals (with and without noise) before applying on in situ test results. Furthermore in situ experiments will be performed on 3 test sites with known dynamic soil characteristics. Also 1 cross hole test will be performed on a site for verification of the calculated results.
