Abstract

A case study investigating settlement predictions based on data from one dimensional compression, pressuremeter (PMT) and dilatometer (DMT) tests is presented. A relationship is established between PMT and DMT evaluated moduli and the standard penetration N values. These relationships are utilized in the settlement computations. The predictions obtained by each method are compared to the actual measured settlement. The column location at which settlement observations were made was instrumented with strain gages to measure the actual applied loads. A comparison between actual and design loads is made. Settlement predictions using PMT were performed utilizing two different existing approaches. A distinction is made between the rheological factors, both termed α, used in each of the methods.

Settlement Predictions in Residual Soils by Dilatometer, Pressuremeter and One-Dimensional Compression Tests: Comparison with Measured Field Response

A case study investigating settlement predictions based on data from one dimensional compression, pressuremeter (PMT) and dilatometer (DMT) tests is presented. A relationship is established between PMT and DMT evaluated moduli and the standard penetration N values. These relationships are utilized in the settlement computations. The predictions obtained by each method are compared to the actual measured settlement. The column location at which settlement observations were made was instrumented with strain gages to measure the actual applied loads. A comparison between actual and design loads is made. Settlement predictions using PMT were performed utilizing two different existing approaches. A distinction is made between the rheological factors, both termed α, used in each of the methods.
