MS draft of a report on 'The effect of frequency upon the softening behaviour of clays under reversed cyclic loading'. With Rowe's graphs and calculations relating to clay at Grimwith, Covenham and Derwent Reservoirs.
The report was prepared for Dr Jalal Khaffaf's Ph.D., which was submitted in 1978. Rowe, who was his supervisor, used some of the results for his own work on centrifuge modelling. Khaffaf and David Proctor of the University of Manchester subsequently wrote three papers using this test data: D.C. Proctor and J.H. Khaffaf, 'Use of cyclic element tests to assess scale models'Journal of the Engineering Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers (1982); D.C. Proctor and J.H. Khaffaf, 'Cyclic triaxial tests of remolded clay',Journal of the Engineering Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers (1984); D.C. Proctor and J.H. Khaffaf, 'Cyclic axial displacement tests on model piles in clay- technical note',Géotechnique, vol. 37, no. 4 (1987).
