Water level response in wells to dynamic shaking in confining unconsolidated sediments: a laboratory study

Hongbiao Gu, Shuang-Shuang Lan, Huang Zhang, Mingyuan Wang, Baoming Chi & Martin Sauter
This article focuses on laboratory experiments designed to investigate the influence of dynamic shaking on water level fluctuation in wells of unconsolidated sediments. A large flume filled with natural sandy sediments was subjected to horizontal dynamic loading at different frequencies (0.5-15Hz) and accelerations (0.1g, 0.15g, 0.25g and 0.5g), generated by a shaking table. Thus, the change in characteristics of the water and saturated sediments were investigated, including how water level and hydraulic properties changed over...
