Abstract : A study has been made of the propagation of pressure waves through the pore fluid of a soil. Dry, saturated, and partially saturated cases are considered for cohesive and cohesionless soils. Tentative recommendations are made concerning assumptions to be made and methods to be used in predicting the pore pressures resulting from impulsive loadings. (Author)
