The acoustic properties of gassy soil

Abstract:

Compression wave sound speed and attenuation measurements are made in the laboratory over frequencies in the range from 10 kHz to 1 MHz on samples of estuarine silty clay that have been provided with varying amounts of uniformly distributed gas bubbles. The soil can be idealised as a two phase material of spherical gas pockets within a matrix of saturated soil, where the pocket sizes are in the range from 100 to 2000 μm diameter. It is shown that the acoustic response of this soil is dominate...
