The in-situ small-strain shear modulus of soil and rock materials is a parameter of paramount importance in geotechnical modeling. It can be derived from non-invasive geophysical surveys, which provide the possibility of testing the subsurface in its natural and undisturbed condition by inferring the velocity of propagation of shear waves. In addition, ...

The offshore industry has been challenged with the necessity to build structures with foundations on carbonate soils, found in extensive areas of the tropical and intertropical zones of the planet. As a better understanding of the behavior of these soils becomes more and more indispensable, this paper presents equations to predict the dynamic behavior o...
