Abstract:
In the present note, the susceptibility to necking of a subsurface barrier installed by the vibrating beam method in fine-grained soils is investigated by physical model tests. Two soils are investigated, a clayey soil and a silty soil. The model soil is prepared by moist tamping. The recipe of slurry in the model tests is widely used in the foundation engineering industry. The dynamic loading exerted by the vibration of the adjacent panel is simulated by a shake table. The test results show that soil plasticity and water content are the major influence factors on the susceptibility to necking. The plasticity index can be used as an indicator for the susceptibility to necking of subsurface barrier installed by the vibrating beam method in fine-grained soils. Other influence factors on necking are also investigated and their implications for practice are discussed.
