In situ tests and the pre-failure deformation behaviour of soils

Abstract:

The non-linear pre-failure behaviour of soils influences the results of some in situ tests, in particular the group of tests which cause expansion of a cavity in the soil (the CPT, pressuremeter and dilatometer). Other tests are relatively unaffected by soil non-linearity, either because the strains are small (as in geophysical tests) or large (as in the vane test). Whilst several tests are affected by non-linearity, that does not necessarily mean that they are suitable for measuring non-line...
