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 .
