|Title:||Response of sand column under impact loading||Authors:||Lim, Say Keat||Keywords:||DRNTU::Engineering::Civil engineering||Issue Date:||2005||Source:||Lim, S. K. (2005). Response of sand column under impact loading. Master’s thesis, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.||Abstract:||Dynamic compaction (DC) has been used widely as an effective method in improving the mechanical properties of loose sand deposits often found in reclaimed land. The process involves dropping a large pounder onto the ground surface, causing a densification of the soil as the impact stress wave propagates downward. In the case of near-saturation condition in reclaimed land, this impact stress might even produce a possible liquefaction of the sand. As not much research have been done to observe the pore-water pressure response of nearly saturated sand undergoing impact loading, the occurrence of such a liquefaction phenomena remains difficult to be firmly established.||Description:||332 p.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/46725||DOI:||10.32657/10356/46725||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||open||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
