<p>This paper shows the determination of undrained shear strength based on cone<br />resistance from cone penetration test for clayey soil. The test was carried out on ten different suspected clayey soil sites at Ebonyi State College of Education, Ikwo. The ...

<p>The formation of cracks in structural elements and other parts of a building such as walls is often unavoidable; that is why some standard of practice specify the maximum allowable width of cracks depending on the type and exposure conditions of a structure. ...

<p>This work focuses mainly on the Geotechnical properties of mapped areas in Gombe town which forms part of the Upper Benue trough. Representative soil samples were collected from these areas and were investigated for their Geotechnical properties with a ...

<p>Since the earliest days of geotechnical engineering, soil properties developed during the site characterization phase of a project have typically been viewed as fixed quantities independent of the deterministic analyses in which they are eventually used. ...

<p>The cone penetration test (CPT) and piezocone penetration test (CPTU) with the measurement of pore pressure are some of the more powerful site investigation tools especially for soft clay. Most of the correlations with geotechnical data were developed based ...

<p>Although manual cone penetration testing in snow has been practised since the 1930&rsquo;s, modern hydraulically-driven CPT equipment has not been used. Collaboration with the British Antarctic Survey will allow the first use of commercial CPT equipment ...

<p>At the Port of Ploce, situated in the river Neretva delta at south Adriatic coast of Croatia, intensive building activities are undertaken. Comprehensive and massive geotechnical investigations are needed for different structures, including drilling, laboratory ...
Reference: 2nd International Symposium on Cone Penetration Testing, Huntington Beach, California, 2010
<p>Cone penetration test (CPT) or piezocone penetration test (PCPT or CPTu) has long been used to estimate the undrained shear strength of clays. However,<br />the undrained shear strength itself is not a unique measure of soil strength; different laboratory ...

<p>This paper investigated the vertical and horizontal distribution of excess pore pressure generated by cone penetration. Multi-porous element piezocone tests were conducted in the field and physical model tests were also performed in the<br />calibration ...

This research presents the correlation of undrained shear strength based on the cone resistance from the cone penetration test (CPT) for clayey soils in Indiana. It utilized the field cone penetration test program including the CPT, the index test, the one ...
