The purpose of this paper is to present test data withing a theoretical framework which allows some relationships to be established between the different time dependent phenomena. It is demonstrated that certain relationships between the different types of ...

The non-linear pre-failure behavior of soils influences the results of some insitu tests, in particular the group of tests which cause expansion of a cavity in the soil (the CPT, pressuremeter and dilatometer). Other tests are relatively unaffected by soil ...
