Results of seismic loading tests on Barney Reservoir soil samples are discussed in this report. The dynamic response of the soil was evaluated by conventional cyclic triaxial loading of saturated specimens under undrained conditions. Information on the post-seismic (static) properties of the material was obtained by performing undrained compression tests on the same specimens following the cyclic portion of the loading.
