Abstract:

The purposes of this study were to Develop and examine, respectively, relations that describe viscous and inertial effects on soil penetration resistance for a variety of probe sizes, shapes, and penetration velocities Compare the relations developed in a above with those of behavioral models from rheology and from fluid mechanics and, Discuss the application of relations from a above to real-world situations, such as soil-vehicle interactions or dynamic probe testing.
