Abstract:

This report contains 1 Data concerning the stress-strain behavior of dry Monterey sand using initial static stresses ranging from 2 to 20 psi a Stress-strain curves for one-dimensional compression with rise-times on the order of 25 milliseconds and stress increments of 100 psi b Dilatational wave velocities measured using ultrasonic pulses and pulses generated by a hammer blow 2 Theory for the dispersion of a wave front passing through a system of discrete particles.
