Abstract : The tests were conducted to determine the effectiveness of the WES's vibratory devices in propagating waves in rock formations, the amplitude and attenuation characteristics of the propagated waves, and distance of propagation. The tests were performed utilizing as a wave source a hydraulic-powered reciprocating mass vibrator capable of producing sinusodial motion under known frequency and force loading conditions.
