Abstract

Results from seismic cone penetration and dilatometer tests performed in a cohesionless soil are presented and compared with previously published correlations for estimating the elastic shear modulus. Poor correlations were obtained between the elastic shear modulus, the dilatometer modulus and the cone tip resistance; however, somewhat better estimates of the elastic shear modulus were obtained using the coefficient of lateral stress and total unit weight empirically determined from the dilatometer.

Seismic Downhole, CPT, and DMT Correlations in Sand

St. Louis, Missouri

Results from seismic cone penetration and dilatometer tests performed in a cohesionless soil are presented and compared with previously published correlations for estimating the elastic shear modulus. Poor correlations were obtained between the elastic shear modulus, the dilatometer modulus and the cone tip resistance; however, somewhat better estimates of the elastic shear modulus were obtained using the coefficient of lateral stress and total unit weight empirically determined from the dilatometer.
