LATERAL EARTH PRESSURE MEASUREMENTS IN A MARINE CLAY

A series of self-boring pressuremeter (SBPM), self-boring lateral stress cell (SBLC), and flat dilatometer (DMT) tests have been performed at a marine clay test site in Massena, New York. Three strain arm readings from the SBPM tests were recorded individually. The SBLC has two stress cells 180 degrees apart. By rotating the SBLC it was possible to measure the lateral stresses in different directions. The DMT tests were performed by pointing the blade in five directions, each 45 degrees apart. The tests performed are described, and the performance of the individual methods are evaluated in light of the test results.
