Cavity Expansion and Penetration Resistance in Sand
A theory, based on cavity expansion and stress rotation analyses, is developed for computing the cone penetration resistance of sand. The sand is modeled as a nonlinear elastic-plastic material. TheExpand

Flat Dilatometer Tests in Calibration Chambers
This paper presents the results of a series of Flat Marchetti's Dilatometer Tests (DMT's) performed in a large Calibration Chamber (CC) on dry Ticino (TS) and Hokksund (HS) sands. These results,Expand

A review of instrumentation for measuring small strains during triaxial testing of soil specimens
Conventional procedures for determining deformations during triaxial tests are based on measurements made externally to the cell. This practice is inadequate, particularly if the small strainExpand

Shear Modulus and Damping of Soils
The shear modulus (G) and damping ratio (D) of two natural clays and both siliceous and carbonatic pluvially-deposited dry sands have been measured at the authors' laboratory by means of a ResonantExpand

STIFFNESS OF TOYOURA SAND FROM DILATOMETER TESTS
A series of dilatometer test profiles were carried out in a calibration chamber on Toyoura sand using a standard blade and a special research dilatometer. Pluviated sand samples were prepared usingExpand
