Improvement of Laminar Shear Container for Shaking Table Test
Shaking table test is an important method to study on the problem of the soil-structure dynamic interaction. The property of the soil container directly affects the accuracy of the result. A laminar shear container was designed for shaking table test. And a shaking table test on soil-underground structure dynamic interaction which structure lay in clay was conducted. The results of the test show that the container eliminated the boundary effect when the dynamic load was applied in only one horizontal direction. Meanwhile, the stiffness of the soil container could be changed according to the change of the model soil, which is applicable to decrease the boundary effect.
