The resonant column test is used to determine the shear or elastic modulus and damping characteristics of soils based on the theory of wave propagation in prismatic rods.[1] Details on this theory can be found in Richart et al. (1970)(chapter 3). Both solid and hollow specimens can be used with this equipment.
