Canadian Geotechnical Journal , , 48 4: In fine-grained soils, it is common to define the current state in terms of overconsolidation ratio OCR that is related to the normal compression line, since fine-grained ideal soils tend to have a unique normal compression line that is essentially parallel to the critical-state line. The early charts developed in the Netherlands were based on measured cone resistance, q c , and sleeve resistance, f s , using a mechanical cone e. The overburden stress and depth influence the measured penetration resistances Wroth AB - The data format developed by Robertson and his coworkers to assess soil behavior type with cone penetration test data using a series of concentric circles can provide an unreliable assessment in overconsolidated soils.

Eslami and Fellenius had suggested that charts based on Q t and F r were not mathematically correct for any statistical analyses, since both Q tn and F r use q t. Characterisation of soils for engineering purposes. However, this continues to have little practical benefit for most projects without a prior knowledge of in situ horizontal stresses Robertson However, the simple circular shape of I c is not always a good fit to the original boundary, except for predominately young uncemented, essentially normally consolidated ideal soils, as suggested by Robertson and Wride The friction jacket cone as an aid in determining the soil profile.

Hence, the chart in Fig. The following articles are merged in Scholar. Send us an email to editor geotechdata. Insitu determination of the shell correction factor in carbonate sands. The site served as a test area for instrumented piles Harris and Mayne and consists of silty fine sand derived from the weathering of the underlying gneiss and schist bedrock. The test is also called, Dutch Cone test.
The excess pore pressures are generally negative with values close to — kPa and hence close to the saturation limit of the sensor. Since , there have been other CPT soil behaviour type charts developed e. Challenges in the interpretation of the DMT in tailings. If the depth to the water table is known zw , it is convenient to show the hydrostatic porewater pressure u0 if the ground- water regime is understood to be an unconfined aquifer no drawdown and no artesian conditions. Hence, combining these two criteria, it is possible to develop a simple Q tn — F r based boundary that would separate ideal soils that are either contractive or dilative at large shear strains, as shown in Fig. Some understanding of the geologic background of the soil is always a required starting point for reliable classification based on CPT data, since geology provides a framework for interpretation.
