Frequency Variable Surface Compaction of Sand Using Rotating Mass Oscillators

Wersall, Carl; Larsson, Stefan; Rydén, Nils LU and Nordfelt, Ingmar (2015) In Geotechnical Testing Journal 38(2). p.198-207
Abstract
The influence of vibration frequency was studied in 110 small-scale compaction tests conducted using a vertically oscillating plate. The underlying soil was dry sand, or sand close to the optimum water content. The results showed that there is a resonant amplification, providing a slightly higher degree of compaction. Frequency has a major influence on soil compaction. An iterative method for calculating the dynamic response of the plate, incorporating strain-dependent properties of the soil, is also presented. The calculated frequency response agrees fairly well with measured quantities.
