IN SITU PRESSUREMETER TESTING: A STATE-OF-THE ART REPORT

Two types of pressuremeter are currently in use in Australia to obtain in situ soil and weathered rock strength and deformation parameters for civil engineering applications. One type is inserted in a pre-bored hole and the other has self-boring capabilities for minimizing disturbance in soft fine-grained soils. This paper reviews, for both types, the information which can be derived from the test results, the conditions to which they are best suited, and the current usage in Australia. /TRRL/
