Pre-consolidation pressure
<p>The paper presents a comparative study between semi-empirical methods for the estimation of pre-consolidation pressure and undrained shear strength from Piezocone (CPTu) data. The first method, proposed by Massad, was developed from observing the variation of these parameters with depth; the second method, proposed by Mayne, was developed from simplific...

This paper highlights the importance of linking regional geology to geotechnical ground investigation when estimating the pre-consolidation pressure σíp of Quaternary clay deposits from piezocone tests. The work comprises a comprehensive site characterization from boring logs, piezocone tests and laboratory oedometer tests carried out at the Tubar&atild...
