Strength and deformation of soil are determined in laboratory tests through shear strength and compression tests. However they do not take into account the impact of dynamic vibration which can cause thixotropy or fluidization of soil. To allow for that, a method which modifies the course of laboratory tests has been proposed. It includes dynamic vibration into shear strength and compression tests of soil. It makes it possible to measure and classify the tested ground with respect to susceptibility to thixotropy caused by dynamic vibrations which lower strength parameters of water saturated silty soils. Earlier research of soil strength parameters tended to underestimate the impact of dynamic vibrations which sometimes constitute initiatory impulse for numerous landslides in rockmass, especially in flysch.
