Abstract:

The tests described herein were conducted to obtain data pertinent to the elastic characteristics of materials underlying a proposed X-band antenna facility near Waldorf, Md. Refraction seismic tests were performed to determine the depths of subsurface interfaces and the compression wave velocities through each soil layer. Vibration tests were also conducted at the site to determine compression and shear moduli of the underlying material. The resonant frequency of the surface material was also determined.
