Cone Penetration Testing in Geotechnical Practice

Lunne, Tom, and H. The use of the cone penetration test CPT for offshore soil investigations is particularly important in sands where it proves problematic and often impossible to take undisturbed samples. The geotechnical literature, however, abounds with different procedures for interpreting CPT data in sands.

A comprehensive data base for sands was established mainly from large scale calibration chamber tests performed at several institutions. The data base also included results from field tests described in the literature and from NGI's experience. The paper presents an evaluation and updated recommendation of Schmertmann's method for estimating relative densities from recorded cone resistance.

It also evaluates various procedures for interpreting the drained friction angle from cone resistance and presents correlations between the constrained deformation modulus and cone resistance. Finally, the paper recommends other in situ tests to complement and enhance the interpretation of CPT data in sand, and points out the necessity for simultaneous sampling and laboratory testing. The use of the cone penetration test CPT is particularly important in sands where it proves problematic and often impossible to take undisturbed samples.

However, the complex mechanism of continuous penetration of a cone into a soil is very difficult to model theoretically. Therefore theoretical relationships modified with empirical data have often underlain the interpretation of CPT results in terms of engineering parameters. Purely empirical relationships are also widely used.

In an attempt to clarify the cone interpretation methods in sands, Exxon Production Research Company initiated a study conducted at the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute NGI to evaluate and possibly update the existing procedures.

Well documented references and NGI in-house research data from large calibration chamber laboratory tests have been synthesized to form consistent data sets of soil parameters and CPT results for several sand types. The data sets have been used to evaluate existing theories and correlations among CPT results and engineering parameters, mainly relative density, shear strength and compression modulus.

Where appropriate, new or updated correlations have been developed. Although field tests represent more closely in situ behaviour, the present study considers predominantly cone penetrometer results from large calibration chambers, where test conditions and soil characteristics are better controlled than in situ and measured cone penetrations can be correlated to well controlled sand densities and geotechnical parameters from more conventional laboratory tests.

Due to the emphasis placed on calibration chamber tests. These are described in more detail in the following chapter. From to , NGI carried out an extensive series of laboratory calibration tests on large sand samples using the electric friction cone penetrometer Similar investigations have been undertaken in Australia 2'3, in Florida 4t5 and in Italy.

Environmental Technology pp Cite as. Pollution of soil and ground water is a significant environmental problem in many parts of the world. An overview is presented of existing cone penetration testing CPT techniques related to the study of these type of pollution. The CPT techniques include sleeve friction measurement to determine the heterogeneity and stratigraphy as well as testing using the piezocone, temperature cone and electrical conductivity cone. For each of these techniques, examples of their use in environmental problems are presented, together with some possible developments for the near future.
