Paper Abstract

In this paper, site tests of dynamic compaction and the corresponding computer simulations were carried out to explore the dynamics character of the soils (II-class self-weight collapse loess). The researches give the spatial and temporal distribution of the dynamic stress and their development with time increase. Results show that the impact between Drop hammer and the soil produce the pulse stress in the soil near the contact zone firstly and then the stress will transmit into other part of the soils. The distribution of dynamic stress at some time is that it is greater in the superficial part of ground and decreases gradually with depth increase during the process of impact. With the propagation of the dynamic stress a compacted soils region with the shape of ellipse are formed. The scope of the reinforced area of DCM (dynamic consolidation method) is given.
