    Abstract

    A data base on cyclical soil strength would be of significant assistance in many phases of site evaluation where detailed complete cyclical soil testing is not available or could not economically be obtained. The objective of this study was to develop a partial data base for determining the seismic strength of saturated cohesionless materials, and, by using this data base, to broaden understanding of the mechanism of soil liquefaction induced in the laboratory.

    The study is in support of efforts to mitigate the effects of earth-quakes through improved methods for determining the seismic strength of soils. To assist in this problem, cyclic triaxial test data were compiled from published literature and from commercial and research laboratories involved in cyclic testing of cohesionless soils; the data were organized, reviewed, and evaluated. Results were grouped by soil type (Unified Classification System). This data may assist geotechnical engineers to evaluate the seismic strength of cohesionless materials.
