Piezocone test
<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...

<p>The test sites analyzed here consist of clay deposits located in the Jacarepaguá Lowlands in Rio de Janeiro, characterized by high plasticity, high compressibility and low undrained shear strength. The deposits are made up of lightly overconsolidated aged clays, montmorillonite being the predominant clay mineral. Soft clay deposits are usuall...
