Detection of shear zones in a natural clay slope using the cone penetration test and continuous dynamic samplingDownload
Abstract: The detection of shear zones along which a mass of soil is moving is essential for understanding the state of stability of natural slopes. Weaker zones in clay soils can be identified from low values of cone penetration test (CPT) tip resistance measured during penetration. This paper...
Abstract: An integrated approach to estimate liquefaction-induced ground settlements using CPT data for sites with level ground is presented. The approach combines an existing CPT-based method to estimate liquefaction resistance with laboratory test results on clean sand to evaluate the...
Abstract: A framework for estimating the ultimate undrained steady state shear strength of sand (S-u) from in situ tests, which combines the theory of critical state soil mechanics with shear wave velocity measurements, is presented. For a particular direction of undrained loading, samples of a...
