K. Akai and M. Hori. Basic study on the dynamic soil-structure interaction (in English). Proc. Japan Soc. Civil Eng. No. 173, 61-78 (1970). Longitudinal impact tests have been performed on a column of clay without and with an embedded cylinder, either flexible (thin-walled metal tube) or rigid (solid aluminium). Pressure gages were installed in the clay circumferentially around the hypothetical or actual cylinder position; strain gages and an accelerometer were attached to the latter to measure the stress field. Attenuation of the stress wave was determined in the continuous clay column both as a function of time near the surface and as a function of distance from the impact point. These data were employed to calculate the stress around a cylindrical inclusion in an infinite medium based on an enveloping plane wave with an amplitude equal to the yield stress of this medium, whose uniaxial constitutive relation was taken as bilinear. The computed values were compared to the stresses measured by the gages with a fair degree of correlation, and the distribution around the two types of cylinders was plotted. Significant differences were noted between the distributions for the two types of cylinders, with relatively small stress levels observed near the central portion. The investigation purports to relate to the failure of soil near the base of structures under earthquake conditions when the surface soil was not disturbed. Reviewer is concerned regarding the postulates of the analysis that involve a simple continuous step loading, a bilinear stressstrain curve with reflection occurring only in the plastic regime, and the absence of any unloading effects or reflections from other boundaries of the system.
