CONTRIBUTION TO THE STUDY OF SOIL COMPRESSIBILITY BY MEANS OF A CONE PENETROMETER /IN FRENCH/

THE ULTIMATE PRESSURE UNDER THE CONE OF A STATIC PENETROMETER TO THE OEDOMETER MODULUS ELASTICITY IS RELATED FOR SILTY AND CLAYEY SOILS. AN EQUATION RELATING THESE TERMS TO THE COEFFICIENT ALPHA IS DERIVED. THE VALUES OF ALPHA ARE GIVEN FOR THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF SOIL TESTED, ON THE SURFACE AND AT DEPTH, IN SUCH A WAY THAT AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE OF SETTLEMENT CAN BE QUICKLY FORECAST FROM STATIC PENETROMETER CURVES, KNOWING THE SOIL PROPERTIES OF THE LAYERS INVOLVED. /A/LCPC/RRL/
