The research was for the purpose of developing equipment for investigating the static and dynamic stress-strain properties of large-sized granular materials. In addition a limited number of static and dynamic test results are presented on various general backfill materials from three missile sites in the United States. The purpose of this research was to define the stress-strain properties of large-sized granular materials which are frequently used to backfill around protective structures such as missile silos or launch control centers.
