CONE PENETRATION OF GRANULAR AND COHESIVE SOILS

The mechanics of rigid cone penetration into granular and cohesive soils is developed in three-dimensional form along limit equilibrium principles with solution sought through the method of characteristics. The use of a stress discontinuity condition is required to allow for solution of the problem in situations where abrupt changes in the deforming soil material occur. Comparison of generated forces and failure planes, between experimentally obtained results, and theoretical predictions show good agreement.
