Factors affecting pressurmeter results

Factors affecting pressurmeter results

Factors affecting pressurmeter results

So i was looking for any free article that talks about factors affecting the PBPMT , i used to have a French article by Jezequel et al but not anymore where he illustrates the effects of certain variables on the PMT curve and so . I am about to present a lecture about it so would you be so kind as to point any articles thanks

RE: Factors affecting pressurmeter results

Pressuremeter testing is depending on operator's skill but most of all it is the quality of the hole that will ensure a good test quality. One hint is to look at ratio E/pl, if it's less than 5, test is probably not performed correctly.

RE: Factors affecting pressurmeter results

As much as I appreciate the feedback I am looking for article more than statements. because simply I need references in order to present a PowerPoint presentation. That means I need name of author images schemes and curves

RE: Factors affecting pressurmeter results

You can start looking at european norm NF EN ISO 22476-4 dated may 2015 which describes what a failed test looks like. Litterature about the subjetc includes :
- D10 notice from Menard "Regles rematives à l'execution des essais pressiométriques sur le terrain"
- D60 notice from Ménard "Règles d'utilisation des techniques pressiométriques et d'exploitation des résultats obtenus pour le calcul des fondations"
- book by Maurice Cassan : "Les essais in situ en mécanique des sols" Eyrolles editor 1978(mainly volume 1)
- book by F Baguelin, JF Jezequel and DH Shields : "The pressuremeter and foundation engineering" Trans Tech Publications 1978

RE: Factors affecting pressurmeter results

Thanks pal , i have seen all the literature you mentioned except the last one .

White Paper - The Criticality of the E/E Architecture
Modern vehicles are highly sophisticated systems incorporating electrical, electronic, software and mechanical components. Mechanical systems are giving way to advanced software and electronic devices, driving automakers to innovate and differentiate their vehicles via the electric and electronic (E/E) architecture. As the pace of change accelerates, automotive companies need to evolve their development processes to deliver and maximize the value of these architectures. Download Now
White Paper - Model Based Engineering for Wire Harness Manufacturing
Modern cars, trucks, and other vehicles feature an ever-increasing number of sophisticated electrical and electronic features, placing a larger burden on the wiring harness that enables these new features. As complexity rises, current harness manufacturing methods are struggling to keep pace due to manual data exchanges and the inability to capture tribal knowledge. A model-based wire harness manufacturing engineering flow automates data exchange and captures tribal knowledge through design rules to help harness manufacturers improve harness quality and boost efficiency.

White Paper - Modeling and Optimizing Wire Harness Costs for Variation Complexity
This paper will focus on the quantification of the complexity related costs in harness variations in order to model them, allowing automated algorithms to optimize for these costs. A number of real world examples will be provided as well. Since no two businesses are alike, it is the aim of this paper to provide the foundational knowledge and methodology so the reader can assess their own business to model how variation complexity costs affect their business.
