The detection of contamination plumes is extremely important, since they may represent serious risks for the population and the environment of a given region. The resistivity piezocone (RCPTU), as Campanella & Weemees (1990) and Campanella & Kokan (1993) suggestions, is a relatively recent technological development of the piezocone, in which a resistivity module is installed at the back of a standard piezocone. This resource enables continuous measurements to be taken of the resistance to an… CONTINUE READING
