FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS OF THE CONE-PRESSUREMETER TEST . PRESSUREMETERS. PROCEEDINGS OF THE THIRD INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM, ORGANISED BY THE BRITISH GEOTECHNICAL SOCIETY, OXFORD UNIVERSITY, APRIL 2-6, 1990

A finite element analysis of the cone pressuremeter test in sand is presented in which the test is idealised as a cylindrical cavity expansion in a Mohr-Coulomb material. A method of estimating strength parameters from the cone pressuremeter test is suggested. Finally, cavity expansion theory is used to explain the effects of chamber diameter on tests of cones and pressuremeters in large calibration chambers. (Author/TRRL)
