Abstract:

This report gives proposed guidelines for the laboratory testing of soil and rock materials for geotechnical analysis and design of nuclear power facilities. It discusses requirements for laboratory facilities and test apparatus, including calibration of test devices the handling and storage of samples the selection and preparation of test specimens and procedures that should be followed in testing. It gives special emphasis to testing for dynamic response analysis of soils, and discusses a number of pitfalls and sources of error in performing and interpreting cyclic tests. A table is provided in which various test methods for soil and rock are listed, together with references to published standard or preferred methods of test and references to other important or useful publications.
