    Cyclic and dynamic testing of soils for geotechnical engineering purposes and centrifuge testing has emerged as a new tool for understanding soil behavior and dynamic soil-structure interaction. STP 1213 is an excellent reference document on these latest testing practices, and emerging technologies and provides additional information on measuring soil properties used cyclic and dynamic loading conditions.

    25 peer-reviewed papers give you an understanding of field, laboratory, and centrifuge methods used in cyclic and dynamic testing of soils for geotechnical engineering purposes.

    The papers discuss:

    • Descriptions of facilities, apparatus, and instrumentation used

    • Theoretical analysis of apparatus and/or instrumentation

    • Results and analysis of experimental research

    • Discussion of testing procedures, improvements, and guidelines
