Figure 13

Arias intensity versus Standard Penetration Resistance.

(a) Ihb versus (N1)60 for sites in the United States and Japan with fines content correction to equivalent 'clean sand'.; (b) Ihb versus qc1 for sites listed in Table 1. Boundary curves for D50 > 0.25 mm and D50 < 0. 15 mm are based on qc - N relation of Robertson and Campanella (1985).
