A COMPARISON OF MODULUS VALUES OF SANDSTONE DERIVED FROM HIGH PRESSURE DILATOMETER PLATE LOADING, GEOPHYSICAL AND LABORATORY TESTING . PRESSUREMETERS. PROCEEDINGS OF THE THIRD INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM, ORGANISED BY THE BRITISH GEOTECHNICAL SOCIETY, OXFORD UNIVERSITY, APRIL 2-6, 1990

The deformation modulus values obtained from high pressure dilatometer (HPD) tests down to a depth of 143 m are compared with modulus values obtained from cross hole geophysics, borehole multichannel and sidewall sonic geologging sondes, and laboratory UCS (unconfined compressive strength) tests with strain measurement. Ratios of modulus values obtained using the different methods are compared. For the assessment of foundation settlement, HPD tests in a vertical borehole located centrally beneath a 865 mm diameter plate load test were used to derive an empirical correlation between the horizontally derived HPD modulus values and the vertically based modulus obtained from the plate loading test.
