Experiment-4: August 16, 2005
Experiment Type: Other
Description: This project will use loading rams (i.e., actuators) and a shaker mounted to a foundation to approximate an earthquake loading. The resistance provided by various backfill soils under different magnitudes and rates of cyclic loading will then be determined. Nine tests were completed with shaker frequencies ranging from 1 to around 10 Hz. An incremental increase of 0.5 Hz was used during testing.
