This data helps determine the shear modulus and Poisson's ratio at intervals through the soil column for soil liquefaction analysis and low-strain soil strength analysis. Hong, S. ICP design methods for driven piles in sands and claysThomas Telford.
The CPT plots from this data set show B q at 1. The terms 0. You must be logged in to post a comment. The undrained shear strength, s u , is not a unique soil property. An equation for estimating the cone factor is suggested for better geotechnical design.
It is possible that the standard DMT-s u correlations may not be applicable in these soils. This data helps determine the shear modulus and Poisson's ratio at intervals through the soil column for soil liquefaction analysis and low-strain soil strength analysis.
