Abstract : The results of the study indicate that there are certain regimes where the elastic theory could be used to determine the dynamic magnification factors. Further, elastic theory does not appear to be applicable over the entire pressure domain nor does it appear to predict the location of the maximum strain. A majority of the observed phenomena may be explained by the fact that the static transmissibility of the soil increases in higher pressure regions and by the fact that the dynamic transmissibility is higher than the static for the low pressure regions. Both the static and dynamic transmissibilities seem to converge in the higher pressure regions. (Author)
