Cone Penetration Testing: Methods and Interpretation discusses the history, applications, and development of the cone penetration test procedures and related test procedures. The book is divided into two parts. Part 1 deals with the cone penetration test proper - its general and historical outline, equipment and their accuracy and calibration, the use of the test results, and .   Engineering Properties of Soils Based on Laboratory Testing Prof. Krishna Reddy, UIC 1 INTRODUCTION Soil is one of the most important engineering materials. Determination of soil conditions is the most important first phase of work for every type of civil engineering facility. Soil properties are determined by both field and laboratory test.

  Although the clay materials laboratory cannot accept outside samples on a regular basis, contract testing is possible on a limited number of projects in New Mexico in which test results would benefit both the public and the Bureau.

IN-SITU AND LABORATORY TESTS ON GLACIAL CLAYS AT REDCAR A comparison has been made of the undrained shear strength and moduli of two types of glacial clays determined from laboratory tests, pressuremeter tests, cone penetration tests and deep plate loading tests on mm diameter by: 2.

ARCHIVED - In-situ and laboratory tests on glacial clays at Redcar. by Marsland A (Jan) £ Download this book (PDF) Book Description The untrained shear strength and moduli of two types of glacial clays have been compared.

Pressure meter tests, cone penetration tests and deep plate loading tests on mm diameter plates were. The tests were made using the equipment and procedures described by Marsland () which gives the results of in situ tests on glacial clays at this site.

The succession of soil strata at the location of the plate tests was similar to that in the area adjacent to the blast furnace. Current Australian practice for sampling, laboratory testing, and in situ testing of soft clays falls short of world's best practices.

Consequences include risks of increased cost and time during. The wide variation in composition, fabric and stress history of glacial clays is reflected by large variations in engineering parameters.

Undrained shear strengths obtained from laboratory tests can vary by a factor of six or more. In order to make reasonable assessments of the values to use in design it is necessary to study the fabric, composition and pore-water pressure response.

–   The pore pressure was measured continuously during a storage period of several days and the results were compared with tests on reconstituted clay in an attempt to simulate the same stress conditions as those in situ. Similar to the in-situ tests, the pore pressure inside the reconstituted samples was measured throughout the test.

In situ pressuremeter tests, vertical and lateral plate load tests, and in situ shear box tests were carried out. A comparative laboratory test program on soil specimens from undisturbed block samples consisted of drained and undrained triaxial compression tests including a number of K 0 and stress path tests.

This section considers the various in-situ tests which are performed to determine the physical and assigning more detailed or elaborate laboratory tests.

The FEBEX in situ test started in with rock-mass characterization and tunnel excavation. After the installation of heaters, the bentonite barrier, and monitoring equipment, the heating began on Febru This pattern is used to assess the potential effects of different forms of sampling on the stress-strain-strength properties measured in laboratory tests on typical offshore clays.

Methods of determining in situ behaviour from laboratory tests on retrieved soil samples are considered.

Edil and Craig H. Benson Research Associates: Lin Li, David. This paper describes the geology and geotechnical engineering properties of a sensitive marine clay deposit at a research site located in Newbury, Massachusetts (MA) in the northeast USA. Results from in situ testing, soil sampling, and laboratory testing are presented.

The clay is locally known as Boston Blue Clay (BBC) which is a glacial marine clay that was deposited. • Correlations with in-situ field testing results. • Correlations based on index parameters.

The laboratory test that is selected and used to evaluate the shear strength of a soil should be the method that is best suited to model the loading condition (undrained total stress or drained effective stress) and the soil response.

Use of In Situ Tests for Foundation Design on Clay. Years of evaluated experience with the field vane test in soft clays have resulted in empirical correction factors well suited for design practice. An extension of L. Bjerrum's correction curve is presented. Results show that the field vane test interpreted with the results from a triaxial compression test can predict the in situ coefficient.

The empirical formulas for the three in situ tests on clay, which are suitable for lightly overconsolidated clays with an OCR range of ≤ 3, are newly developed. The best correlation between σ′ p (or OCR) and (q t − σ v), which is relatively close to Mayne () correlation (k = ), is obtained.

The sediments at the NTNU research site Dragvoll, Trondheim, Norway accumulated in seawater close to the glacier front during the Pleistocene-Holocene transition.

A comprehensive site investigation and laboratory test program was carried out to characterize the quick clay at Dragvoll. Downsized block samples, mini-blocks, were extracted and tested in the laboratory. A variety of in situ and laboratory tests have been conducted here to investigate the properties of the clay soils (Finno et al.

). Figure 4 shows a representative portion of a CPTu sounding in the soft clay from 10 to 22 m depths with respective q t, f s, and u 2 values obtained using the Georgia Tech cone truck (Mayne a).• in-situ testing during the field exploration program; • laboratory testing, and • back-analysis based on site performance data The two most common in-situ test methods for use in soil are the Standard Penetration Test, (SPT) and the cone penetrometer test (CPT).

Section describes these tests as well as other in-situ tests.Three types of natural soils are studied in this paper: 1) a postglacial silt, 2) a glacial till, and 3) a postglacial sand. The former two are soils from embankment dam sites in Sweden, and the latter is a soil from a natural deposit situated in the Swedish east coastal region.
