Experiment-7: Field Testing with MK15 Shaker (2012 Re-Test)
Experiment Type: Field
Description: This experiment involved the re-testing of the embankment using the NEES@UCLA MK15 eccentric mass shaker. The plan of shaking was similar to the previous year's shakes. Modifications to this experiment include repair of the timber shaker base, re-compaction of the embankment soils, and saturation of the dessicated peat layer at the site. Saturation of the peat involved building a berm around the embankment and then flooding the area with water from a nearby drainage ditch.
