Abstract

The best way to obtain the mechanical soil properties for seismic ground response analysis is in situ test for the elastic modulus and laboratory test on undisturbed sample for the nonlinear properties. In the engineering practice, however, this is not always possible. The cyclic deformation characteristics test is a costly test in the practice. The frozen sample requires huge cost to retrieve the highly undisturbed sample, and its applicability is limited to clean sand.
