Abstract

An experimental program was conducted to quantify the strain rate dependency of silica sand under different low to intermediate strain rates. Measurements of axial stress, axial strain and stiffness were explored to assess the sensitivity of mechanical properties to strain rate. Strain rates were applied on samples subjected to uniaxial compression stresses within a range of 0.01 to 100 %/s. The tests help facilitate the incorporation of strain rate dependency of soil response in geotechnical modeling of soil-structure interaction problems. Available observations of the response of sand under monotonic loading suggest that sand may exhibit significant strain rate dependency.
