CORRELATION OF THE TEXAS HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT CONE PENETROMETER TEST WITH THE DRAINED SHEAR STRENGTH OF COHESIONLESS SOILS
Improved correlations have been developed between the Texas Highway Department (THD) Cone Penetrometer Test N-value and the drained shear strength of cohesionless soils. Cone penetrometer test data and undisturbed sand samples were obtained at five different test sites. To develop the correlations new techniques in sampling and testing of cohesionless soils were implemented. From the results of field and laboratory investigations reasonably good correlations were developed for both drained shear strength, s, and effective overburden pressure, p', with the THD Cone Penetrometer Test N-value.
