The paper critically reviews in situ and laboratory testing methods used to characterize soil deposits for seismic response analyses. Cyclic loading triaxial tests (CLTX), Cyclic loading torsional shear tests (CLTST) and Resonant column tests (RCT) are considered. As for the in situ testing, geophysical seismic tests and dynamic penetration tests are discussed. Influence of ground conditions on seismic response analyses in a number of real cases is shown.

Abstract

The paper critically reviews in situ and laboratory testing methods used to characterize soil deposits for seismic response analyses. Cyclic loading triaxial tests (CLTX), Cyclic loading torsional shear tests (CLTST) and Resonant column tests (RCT) are considered. As for the in situ testing, geophysical seismic tests and dynamic penetration tests are discussed. Influence of ground conditions on seismic response analyses in a number of real cases is shown. The database made available by the Regional Government of Tuscany (RT) has been used.
