Calculation of stresses on shallow penetrometers and footings.

Abstract:

A short review is made of the types of analyses available for cone penetration tests. The assumptions involved in analyses using the method of characteristics (slip line methods) are discussed, and some analyses of problems of shallow cone penetration and bearing capacity are presented. Graphical results are presented for the variation of the cone factor, Nc, with the angle and roughness of a shallowly penetrating cone. The second example of the application of the method is to problems of bea...
