Measurement of the viscoelastic and related mass-physical properties of some continental terrace sediments
Bieda, George Edward
MetadataShow full item record
The complex rigidity of 20 samples of continental terrace clayeysilt sediments has been measured in the laboratory using a viscoelastometer in the frequency range from 4 to 38 kHz. The method involves measuring the effects on torsional waves propagating in a rod due to shear loading of the side walls of the rod when it is imbedded in the sediment.
