COMPARISON OF SOME VANE TEST RESULTS AND CORRESPONDING RESISTANCES TO THE CONE MEASURED IN PENETRATION TESTS.

VERGELIJKING VAN DE RESULTATEN VA ENKELE VINPROEVEN EN VAN DE OVEREENKOMSTIGE KONUSWEERSTANDEN OPGEMETEN IN SOUDERINGEN

Approximately twenty vane tests were carried out simultaneously with static penetration tests in low-strength soil layers. Results showed that the theoretical relation generally accepted C(K,A)=(NC) (CY), where C(K,D) is the end-bearing resistance, CY the apparent cohension and NC a coefficient, is justified as long as the end-bearing resistance is between 8 to 16KG/CM. SQ., in this case the value of NC is 15. For lower values of C(K,A), no correlation could be established. Several hypotheses are put forward to explain this fact.
