Abstract:

Experiments were conducted in June 1965 to extend fundamental knowledge of differential motions of buried inclusions and soil when the soil is subjected to surface blast loadings. Four inclusions of two masses buried at two depths in dry sand were subjected to surface blast pressures from 4 to 250 psi. The heavier masses displaced farther than either the lighter masses or the soil, but the soil displaced farther than the lighter mass at the shallower depth. The density of the soil was intermediate between the densities of the two inclusion masses. Author
