Abstract

This paper compares experimental results from every facility for LEAPUCD-2017. The specified experiment consisted of a submerged medium-dense clean sand with a 5-degree slope subjected to 1 Hz ramped sine wave base motion in a rigid container. The ground motions and soil density were intentionally varied from experiment to experiment in hopes of defining the slope of the relational trend between response (e.g., displacement, pore pressure), intensity of shaking, and density or relative density. This paper is also intended to serve as a useful starting point for overview of the experimental results and to help others find specific experiments if they want to select a subset for further analysis. The results of the experiments show significant differences between each other, but the responses show a significant correlation, R2 ~ 0.7-0.8, to the known variation of the input parameters.
