Abstract The hydraulic placement of sand fill is one of the most important methods of land reclamation. During the reclamation process, losses of fines in sand are induced by the transportation of soil which affects the dynamic properties of the soil materials. In this study, the reclaimed soil in the Yunlin area of Taiwan is adopted as the test material. Different fines contents, different relative densities, and initial stress ratio were taken as test conditions. Resonant column tests were performed to evaluate the shear modulus and damping ratio of the reclaimed soil under initial shear stress. The results show that the maximum shear modulus decreases as the fines content increases. The influences of initial shear stress are discussed. A prediction method for maximum shear modulus under different fines content and initial shear stress is proposed based on empirical equations obtained. The results can be helpful for land reclamation design and assessment.
