Abstract

This paper discusses the challenges that occur when performing Cone Penetration Tests (CPT) in silty soil due to changes in drainage conditions. In this paper, CPT results from various papers and researchers are collected and interpreted. Results from cone penetrations tests with various penetration rates is analysed, and it is shown how the changes in drainage condition, caused by the change in penetration rate, affects the plot in the soil classification charts. In addition, the effect on changes in penetration rate is compared for clay and silt, respectively, where the silty soil is more susceptible towards change in penetration rate. A normalized penetration rate is implemented in order to compare various cone resistance results, and hence investigate the changes from undrained to partially drained and from partially drained to fully drained.
