STATIC PENETROMETER AND COMPRESSIBILITY OF SOIL

LE PENETROMETRE STATIQUE ET LA COMPRESSIBILITE DES SOLS

The object of the article is to forecast settlement of compressible soil using the results of in-situ static penetration tests. The study is based on the analysis of results of the laboratory test on samples taken from soil located in the immediate vicinity of the place where the corresponding static penetration tests were being carried out. 600 double samples were examined. Tables show correlations which facilitate the determination of the maximum compression index from end-bearing resistance and moisture content measurements. The tables also enable the buisman relation to be applied to different categories of soil. /TRRL/
