Application of MASW Method for Evaluating Dynamic Properties of Lu-Liao-His Earth Dam
In the paper the shear wave velocity and Poisson’s ratio profile are studied using the MASW test. Slant stacking was adopted in experimental dispersion curve constructing. Theoretical dispersion curve can be constructed by thin layer stiffness matrix method. A real-parameter genetic algorithm is required to minimize the error between the theoretical and experimental dispersion curves. Test results show that spectrum using slant stacking shows the fundamental mode of Rayleigh wave in the frequency range from 15 Hz to 50Hz. To reduce the error of experimental and theoretical dispersion curve using real-parameter genetic algorithm is feasible. The results also show that the strata of Lu-Liao-His Earth Dam can be modeled as 3 soil layers with an underlying half space.
