Abstract : The instrumentation and equipment purchased under the 'DOD-University Research Instrumentation Program' is currently being used to support AFOSR funded field research on Explosive Induced Liquefaction of Soils. The instrumentation is being used to provide high speed transient data acquisition of stress, water pressure, acceleration, data storage, data reduction, and test documentation to permit development of analytical, theoretical, and empirical models of the phenomena. Keywords: Blast explosive induced liquefaction; Shock test.
