THE LOUIS MENARD PRESSIOMETER. SOME PROBLEMS OF APPLICATION AND THEIR EFFECTS ON PRESSURE VALUES /IN FRENCH/

THE LOUIS MENARD PRESSURE TEST IS AN IN-SITU SOIL TEST. THE PRESSIOMETRIC CHARACTERISTS DEFINED BY MENARD ARE CONSIDERED SUCH AS: PRESSIOMETRIC MODULUS, CREEP PRESSURE AND ULTIMATE PRESSURE. THE INFLUENCE ON THE PRESSURE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE TECHNOLOGICAL PARAMETERS, CALIBRATION AND QUALITY OF DRILLING, AND DIRECT APPLICATION OF THE APPARATUS BY DRIVING IS STUDIED. RESULTS SHOW THAT THE MEASUREMENT OF THE ULTIMATE PRESSURE IS FAIRLY ACCURATE BUT THAT THE PRESSIOMETRIC MODULUS VARIES ACCORDING TO THE APPLICATION TECHNIQUE USED. /LCPC/RRL/
