Flat Dilatometer Modulus Applied to Drilled Shaft Foundations in Piedmont Residuum

Behavior of Concrete Joints under Cyclic Shear

A Micro-Deformation Model for Dilatancy of Granular Materials

Predicting Shallow Foundation Settlement in Sands from DMT
The dilatometer test is ideal for predicting the settlement of shallow foundations. It directly measures a modulus of the soil and has been correlated to predict stress history. Recently,...

Constitutive Equation for Granular Material by Hypoelasticity
Constitutive equations for soil based upon the incremental theory of hypoelasticity are proposed in this paper to account for the stress path dependency and dilatant behavior of soil....

Simulation of the Quasi-Static Deformation of 2D Assemblages of Rigid Discs
Although the importance of dilatancy in the constitutive behaviour of granular materials has been recognized for some time, conclusions about its evolution and dependence on different...

Thermal Strain Behaviour of Clays Cooled to Cryogenic Temperatures
The thermal expansion behaviour of two different types of clays (Boom clay from Belgium and a pure kaolinite-water paste) has been studied in a temperature range from +20° to -150°C (LNG...

Prediction of Transverse Shear Stresses for Various Isoparametric Thick and Thin Shell Elements
Utilizing three-dimensional equilibrium equations (often referred to as an Equilibrium Method (EM)), an estimation of transverse stresses for fiber-reinforced laminated doubly curved shells...

Some Dilatometer Test Results in Pennsylvania and New York
This paper starts with a brief introduction to the dilatometer and piezoblade. Test results in four different areas are presented. DMT soundings at LR 67057 (Legislative Route numbers...

Use of In Situ Tests in Geotechnical Engineering
In the past ten years, many new types of in situ test equipment and many new techniques have been developed. The papers in this volume are concerned with applications of in situ measurement...

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...

Deformation Characteristics of Cohesionless Soils from In Situ Tests
This paper is a summary of seven years experience gained by the National Electricity Board of Italy (ENEL), ISMES and Technological University of Turin in assessing these parameters using...

Dilatometer Tests in Sand
The paper presents two applications of the dilatometer test in sands: control of compaction and determination of constrained modulus. Twelve dilatometer tests were carried out before and...

Dilatometer to Compute Foundation Settlement
Sixteen examples demonstrate how the S. Marchetti dilatometer test (DMT) provides soil compressibility data for the rapid calculation of foundation settlements with an average ratio of...
