During the past decade finite element analyses have shown that the majority of strain levels in the ground at working loads are typically less than 0.1%. It has therefore become important that stiffness values to be used in geotechnical calculations should be measured at these small strain levels. There is also a growing appreciation of the value of measuring the very small strain stiffness Gmax, using seismic methods. There are many types of seismic survey and this paper reviews a selection that have been found to be of value for ground investigations. (A) For the covering abstract see IRRD 883023.
