Cone penetration testing: methods and interpretation (B2)
Out of print publication, available as a photocopy only
This report provides guidance on the use of the cone penetration test (CPT), and on the interpretation of test results and their use in design. Part 1 covers the CPT as at present established. Part 2 deals with pore-pressure sounding (PPS and the cone penetration test with pore-pressure measurement (CPTU)).
Correlations of CPT results with engineering parameters and performance presented in this report should be viewed with the appropriate degree of caution. This varies from one correlation to another, and comments on this aspect are included in the text. The practice described is that adopted in the UK, which closely follows European practice. Reference is also made to North American methods, particularly in respect of interpretation of results.ISBN: 978-0-86017-381-6
