Experiment-3: Field Testing with MK-15 shaker
Experiment Type: Field
Description: This experiment involved shaking the model test embankment with the NEES@UCLA MK15 eccentric mass shaker. Shake sequences included frequency sweep, step sweeps, and extended shaking at a given frequency. Accelerations of the embankment, underlying peat, and free field peat were measured, along with pore pressure response in the peat. Maximum accelerations at the embankment base reached 0.13g.
