Geophysical Study
Experiment Type: Field
Description: A geophysical study was conducted to measure ambient vibrations and vibrations from active sources including (1) a sledgehammer striking a plate on the soil surface, (2) a car driving atop the levee crest, and (3) a person jumping up and down. The purpose of this study was to determine the shear wave velocity and small-strain damping properties of the peaty organic soil for assessing spatial attenuation of waves with distance from our test specimen to make sure vibrations imposed on the levees will be tolerable. The study also identified tolerable levels of vibrations for the levees (e.g., cars driving atop the levee crest).
