The emphasis of this presentation is directed toward indicating typically the current state- of- the- art with regard to experimentally observed rheologic response characteristics of clay soils subjected to dynamic loadings, both with and without inertial effects, and evaluating the applicability of linear viscoelastic theory to characterize this response. Primary concern is given to steady- state vibratory and single pulse loadings, and the particular soil properties considered include dynamic modulus and compliance, strength,energy dissipation, viscosity, relaxation time, compaction, and wave propagation velocity and attenuation.
