Its linear part is used to determine

shear modulus value.

where [[alpha].sub.e], [r.sub.e1], and [r.sub.e2] are material parameters and [G.sup.E.sub.0] the initial elastic

shear modulus. [[gamma].sup.P*.sub.ap] denotes the accumulative plastic deviatoric strain after the stress ratio reaches the phase transformation [M.sup.*.sub.m], and [[gamma].sup.E*.sub.r] is the reference strain which can be obtained by fitting to liquefaction resistance curve.

The effects of the

shear modulus ratio [G.sup.SL] of the soil and die, the Poisson ratio [v.sup.s] of the soil material, the fractional-derivative order [alpha], the material parameter ratio [T.sub.[sigma]]/[T.sub.[epsilon]] on the radial displacement, and the hoop stress amplitude were investigated.

The first one is the maximum

shear modulus, [G.sub.0], which can be measured in the order of ~10-5-10-3% cyclic strain range.

Solving Equation 1 and 2, both derived from bending tests, it leads to values of longitudinal modulus of elasticity and

shear modulus, Equation 3 and 4, respectively.

TABLE 1: Mean grain size, grain centre distribution, grain boundary atomic fraction [eta], bulk modulus B,

shear modulus [mu], Young's modulus E, and Poisson's ratio v, calculated from the above values of B and [mu], and average values of Young's modulus resulting from uniaxial strain tests, for each of the 8 samples studied in this paper.

In the formula mentioned above (see (1)), E is Young's modulus, G is

shear modulus, [rho] is the density, and [mu] refers to Poisson's ratio.

where [K.sub.w] and [K.sub.G] are Winkler modulus for normal load and

shear modulus for transverse shear loads, respectively.

The

shear modulus [micro] of the measured muscle can then be calculated via the following equation:
