In the more elaborate CPT instruments, the cone and the sleeve attached to the outer rod can move separately. See all articles by this author Search Google Scholar for this author. The measurements are carried out using electronic transfer and data logging, with a measurement frequency that can secure detailed information about the soil conditions. Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering, Vol. Cited by View all citing articles Large-diameter helical pile capacity — torque correlations. The early charts developed in the Netherlands were based on measured cone resistance, q c , and sleeve resistance, f s , using a mechanical cone e.
Linear trendlines to assess soil classification from cone penetration test data
However, the normalization process is not always perfect due to uncertainty in estimating in situ stress. Canadian Geotechnical Journal , , 48 4: Analysis and interpretation of piezocone data on the silty soils of the Venetian lagoon Treporti test site. Society for Underwater Technology, London, pp. The format shown in Fig. The total cone tip resistance qt is always preferred over the raw measured value qc.
Cone penetration test in assessment of soil stiffness | Tschuschke | Geological Quarterly
The suggested relationship shown in Fig. However, if the clays are fissured, then zero to negative porewater pressures are observed e. Swets and Zeitlinger, Lisse, pp. Not a MyNAP member yet? At test depths above the groundwater table, porewater pressure readings vary with capillarity, moisture, degree of saturation, and other factors and should therefore be considered tentative. Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering 9: However, it is also possible that an apparent microstructure is caused by the highly compressible nature of the carbonate grains.
