Abstract:

A soil bin equipped for measuring the time-displacement behavior of representative particles under a moving load is recapitulated from earlier reports. Methods of preparing soils and placement of particle position markers are described with emphasis on problems associated with preparing fully saturated clay beds. For a series of driven wheel tests, the test parameters, test procedures, and the results of auxiliary tri-axial tests are reported. For towed wheel tests, strain rate fields are tabulated.
