<p>Soil behavior is complex and thus requires quantification by a reasonably good number of different engineering parameters. Consequently, the seismic piezocone test (SCPTu) is particularly well-suited to being an efficient and economical tool for routine ...

The responses of the individual base and side components of O-cell load tests on drilled shaft foundations can be evaluated within an elastic continuum framework using results from seismic piezocone tests (SCPTu). The SCPTu is an optimal means for collection ...

This report explores the current practices of departments of transportation associated with cone penetration testing (CPT). The report examines cone penetrometer equipment options field testing procedures CPT data presentation and geostratigraphic profiling ...

Interrelationships between the flat dilatometer readings (lift-off pressure, p0, and expansion pressure, p1) and piezocone readings (cone tip stress, qt, and penetration porewater pressures, u2) are explored for three soft clay sites. Within the intact regions, ...
Reference: PROCEEDINGS FROM THE SECOND INTERNATIONAL FLAT DILATOMETER CONFERENCE, 2006
The paper presents the data and discousses the various methods of determining pile capacity and addresses influence of set up.
Reference: Current practice and future trends in deep foundatios, Vancouver Canada
The flat plate dilatometer test (DMT) is well-recognized for its ability to calculate settlements of shallow foundations in a practical manner in soil types ranging from sand to silt to clay. Within the Piedmont physiographic province, an equivalent method ...

The axial load-displacement-capacity of drilled shaft foundations can be conveniently evaluated using the results of seismic piezocone penetration tests (SCPTU) to provide continuous profiles of small- and large-strain soil properties. The penetration readings ...

Recent research shows that G0 applies to both static and dynamic properties, as well as to both undrained and drained loading conditions in geotechnical situations. Since the traditional penetration readings from the cone correspond to failure states, an entire ...

The National Geotechnical Experimentation Site at Opelika, Alabama is underlain by residual silts and sands derived from the weathering of schist and gneiss of the Piedmont Geologic Province. Site characterization by in-situ tests has included anextensive ...

Laboratory and field measurements of the small-strain shear modulus of a Piedmont residual soil were compared to gain a better understanding of mechanisms affecting stiffness. Resonant column tests were performed to study influences of void ratio, overconsolidation ...
