Piezocone and Cone Penetration Test CPTu and CPT Applications in Foundation Engineering

Piezocone and cone penetration tests (CPTu and CPT) applications in foundation engineering includes different approaches for determining the bearing capacity of shallow foundations, along with methods for determining pile bearing capacity and settlement concepts. The use of soft computing (GMDH) neural networks related to CPT records and Geotechnical parameters are also discussed. In addition, different cases regarding the behavior of foundation performance using case records, such as shallow foundation, deep soil improvement, soil behavior classification (SBC), and bearing capacity are also included. Provides the latest on CPT and CPTu performance in geotechnical engineering, i.e., bearing capacity, settlement, liquefaction, soil classification and shear strength prediction Introduces soft computing methods for processing soil properties and pile bearing capacity via CPT and CPTu Explains CPT and CPTu testing methods which allows for the continuous, or virtually continuous, record of ground conditions

The "Red Book" presents a background to conventional foundation analysis and design. The text is not intended to replace the much more comprehensive 'standard' textbooks, but rather to support and augment these in a few important areas, supplying methods applicable to practical cases handled daily by practising engineers and providing the basic soil mechanics background to those methods. It concentrates on the static design for stationary foundation conditions. Although the topic is far from exhaustively treated, it does intend to

Demanding a thorough knowledge of material behaviour and numerical modelling, site characterisation and in situ test interpretation are no longer just basic empirical recommendations. Giving a critical appraisal of the understanding and assessment of the stress-strain-time and strength characteristics of geomaterials, this book explores new interpretation methods for measuring properties of a variety of soil formations. Emphasis is given to the five most commonly encountered in situ test techniques: standard penetration tests cone penetration tests vane test pressuremeter tests dilatometer

Cone Penetration Testing: Methods and Interpretation discusses the history, applications, and development of the cone penetration test procedures and related test procedures. The book is divided into two parts. Part 1 deals with the cone penetration test proper – its general and historical outline, equipment and their accuracy and calibration, the use of the test results, and its parameters in different kinds of soils and materials. Part 2 covers the role and use of piezocones and its use for the assessment of soil.

The geotechnical engineer needs to be aware of the advantages and problems of different tests for sites with different geological conditions. Interpreting the results of penetration tests is an essentially empirical activity and as such the engineer is required to understand standard equipment and procedures. This book provides crucial information about all these considerations and is a valuable textbook of current theory and practice.

This book presents a one-stop reference to the empirical correlations used extensively in geotechnical engineering. Empirical correlations play a key role in geotechnical engineering designs and analysis. Laboratory and in situ testing of soils can add significant cost to a civil engineering project. By using appropriate empirical correlations, it is possible to derive many design parameters, thus limiting our reliance on these soil tests. The authors have decades of experience in geotechnical engineering, as professional engineers or researchers. The objective

Risk and reliability analysis is an area of growing importance in geotechnical engineering, where many variables have to be considered. Statistics, reliability modeling and engineering judgement are employed together to develop risk and decision analyses for civil engineering systems. The resulting engineering models are used to make probabilistic predictions, which are applied to geotechnical problems. Reliability & Statistics in Geotechnical Engineering comprehensively covers the subject of risk and reliability in both practical and research terms * Includes extensive use of case studies *

At some time 30% of the world’s land mass was covered by glaciers leaving substantial deposits of glacial soils under major conurbations in Europe, North and South America, New Zealand, Europe and Russia. For instance, 60% of the UK has been affected, leaving significant glacial deposits under major conurbations where two thirds of the population live. Glacial soils are composite soils with significant variations in composition and properties and are recognised as challenging soils to deal with. Understanding the environment in
