Abstract

This Letter reports measurements of nonlinearity parameter B/A of water-saturated glass beads under uniaxial compression representative of the gravitational loading in seabed. The finite-amplitude method in conjunction with the multi-Gaussian beam model is used to determine B/A, in which the use of an accurate source function is found to be important in achieving the overall measurement accuracy. The estimated B/A is on the order of a hundred and decreases with increasing uniaxial compression up to 50 kPa, so that B/A could change as much as 20% over a depth of 5 m for a typical coarse sandy sediment.
