Synopsis:

The subject is focused on basic principles of soil dynamics – on waves in flexible environment and with properties of soils when dynamically loaded. Methods of laboratory and filed dynamic properties of soils are the starting point for the students. After that they will be acquainted with modern methods of the determination of dynamic shear modulus with help of bender elements. The attention will be devoted after that on the impact of the dynamic properties determination with respect to the fidelity and availability of individual values for the solution of the specific geomechanical task. Students after that will solve basic tasks of the determination dynamical soil properties na on the base of wave velocity spreading in soils and also on the base of penetration tests. Students will provide individually and with teammate realize laboratory measurements of the dynamic shear modulus of soils.
