<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>The cone permeameter test is a generally accepted field test by geotechnical engineers for determination of infiltration characteristic of unsaturated soils <br />(Kode&scaron;ovā et al., 1998). In this study, cone permeameter test is conducted for estimating ...

<p>The Perm&eacute;afor is an in situ soil testing device developed in the early 80&rsquo;s. The probe has a conical shape and is pushed or hammered into the ground using<br />a conventional drill rig. The tool is advanced through the subsurface at a constant ...

<p>In-hole type CPTu equipment which combines the concepts of in-hole test method and piezocone test method was newly developed in order to evaluate the dynamic properties of marine soils. The objective of this paper is to investigate the practical application ...

<p>Piezocone penetration tests (CPTU) were carried out at three expressway sites in Taihu lacustrine clay deposits. The coefficient of consolidation and coefficient of permeability of the Taihu lacustrine clay were studied by laboratory and piezocone dissipation ...

<p>In many ground improvement projects the preliminary field testing method is different from the tests that are carried out later. Hence, it may be necessary to correlate the two tests for comparative purposes. Dynamic Compaction, using pounders weighing ...
