DETERMINATION WITH A PRESSIOMETER OF THE IN-SITU PRESSURE OF HYDRAULIC FILLS

EHKSPERIMENTAL'NOE OPREDELENIE PRIRODNOGO DAVLENIYA V NAMYVNYKH GRUNTAKH S POMOSHCH'YU PRESSIOMETRA

In-situ pressure was determined by means of pressiometer tests carried out in fine sand (hydraulically placed) so as to retain the pressure on the walls of the borehole up to the beginning of the test itself. The results show that all vertical and horizontal in-situ pressures are equal to the product of gamma by the height. The method described is simple enough to be used in geotechnical studies. (TRRL)
