Abstract : CIST 18, conducted at the HAVE HOST Test Site south of Wellton, Arizona, is documented. This documentation begins with a brief description of the fielding of the test event and culminates with the in-situ material models presently being used in the HAVE HOST pretest predictions. Analysis of the data is accomplished and leads to several conclusions on the effect that soil cementation has on the test results. Acceleration, velocity and displacement time histories are found in Appendix A, along with comparisons between the actual data and present material models contained in Appendix B. (Author)
