Abstract
Modulus of elasticity is an important soil property for elastic settlement analysis of foundations and determination of dynamic soil properties. The aim of this study is to evaluate the modulus of elasticity of soil by conducting incremental cycle loading laboratory testing. The results of laboratory plate load tests on sand bed under incremental loading and unloading conditions for different densities of soil are presented in this study. The elastic modulus of soil is determined using coefficient of elastic uniform compression. As the density of the soil is increased the coefficient of elastic uniform compression and modulus of elasticity increase significantly due to the substantial increase in the soil stiffness.
