Knowledge of the pressure dependences of seismic velocities in unconsolidated sands is necessary for the remote prediction of effective pressures and for the projection of velocities to unsampled locations within shallow sand layers. We have measured the compressional- and shear-wave velocities and bulk, shear, and Pwave moduli at pressures from 0.1 to 20 MPa in a series of unconsolidated granular samples including dry and water-saturated natural sands and dry synthetic sand and glass-bead… CONTINUE READING
