A simple shear device named the double specimen direct simple shear (DSDSS) device was designed to investigate static and cyclic properties of soils at small strains, such as cyclic stress-strain loops, maximum shear modulus, G max , secant shear modulus, G s , and the equivalent viscous damping ratio, λ. Cyclic shear strains between 5 × 10 −4 and 2 × 10 −2 % were successfully applied and measured. Such measurements of very small strains were achieved by completely eliminating the friction of… CONTINUE READING
