... 32 CPTs average. minimum and maximum tip resistance (q c ) are presented in a vertical profile (Figure 4). The average cone resistance (q c ) was used for the calculation of restrained modulus (M) by Sanglerat (1972), Lunne and Christoffersen (1983) and Eslaamizaad and Robertson (1996) methods. ...
Context 2
... are lower and upper limits for cohesive soils (landfill and lean clay). The eodometric moduli of each layer measured on undisturbed samples in the laboratory are also shown in Figure 4. Eodo­ metric (E oed ) and constrained (M) modulus are the same mechanical parameters. ...
Context 3
... layers' thickness in Figure 4. is just the aver­ age of the 32 CPTs. It happens that sometimes an oedometric or DMT test falls below or above the assigned stratum. ...
Context 4
... moduli estimated by DMT measurements in lean clay spread between the other methods based on CPT. In the lower two strata of silty sand and grav­ elly sand, the results of oedometer tests distribute around the values estimated by the Sanglerat (1972) method (Figure 4. Table 5.). ...
Context 5
... the results of the oedometric test vary with depth, Figure 2. Eq. 2-3. In lower two strata the DMT measurements result in a higher constrained modulus (Figure 4.) as the methods proposed by Lunne and Christoffersen (1983) and Eslaamizaad and Robertson (1996). ...
Context 6
... dilatometer disturbs the soil less than the CPT, so more realistic constrained modulus can be estimated, which is way higher than the results of investigated correlations (Eslaamizaad and Robert­ son, 1996;Lunne and Christoffersen, 1983) Figure 4-5. ...
