Penetrometer Design

Dph Penetrometer

1 P Dimensions and masses of the components of the driving device are given in table 6.1. The following requirements shall be fulfilled - the steel hammer must be conveniently guided to ensure minimal resistance during the drop - the automatic release mechanism shall ensure a constant free fall, with a negligible speed of the hammer when released and no induced parasitic movements in the drive rods - the steel drive head or anvil shall be rigidly connected to the top of the drive rods. 1 P The...

Menard Pressuremeter Modulus

A is a correlationfactor estimated on the basis of local experience An example of a correlation is given in annex B.3. 3.7.2 Pile foundations 1 P When the ultimate bearing resistance of piles is evaluated from CPT results according to 7.6.3.3 4 P of ENV 1997-1, calculation rules based on established correlations between the results of static load tests and CPT results shall be used. 2 In annex B.4 an example is given for the assessment of the bearing resistance of a single pile on the basis of...

Dilatometer Probe Rod

1 P The vane shall consist of four rectangular plates fixed at 90 angles to each other, see figure 8.1. The blades shall be parallel with the extension rods and no distortion is allowed. 2 P The relation between the height h and the diameter o of the vane shall be 2,0 for standard vanes. 3 A maximum vane size cfx h of 100 mm x 200 mm for very soft soils and a minimum vane size of 40 mm x 80 mm for dense soils are commonly used for standard vanes. 4 P The blade thickness shall not exceed 3,0 mm...

Group according to ENV 1997-1, Annex E, Table E.1. 27 The classification of core samples will normally comprise a geological description, the core recovery, the Rock Quality Designation RQD , the degrees of induration, weathering and fissuring. For weathering classification see annex L. In addition to the routine tests in table 2.3 for rocks other tests may be selected for different purposes, e.g. density of grains, wave velocity, Brazilian tests, shear strength of rock and joints, slake...
