Resonant column and torsional shear apparatus 31-WF8600

Dynamic proprieties of the soil are evaluated relative to a number of factors including, strain level, density, number of cycles, material type, saturation and effective stress. The typical test method covers the determination of the shear modulus and damping properties of soils. in intact and remolded conditions by vibration using resonant column devices. Resonant column  typically covers a range of deformation from 0.0001% to 0.1-1%
