Van Oord DMC executed a large land reclamation project, where requirements had to be met concerning the settlement of shallow foundations to be placed on the sand fill. CPT based settlement predictions performed in the design phase had to be verified with zone load testing. After completing the project, all measurement data were analysed to gain insight into the accuracy of existing correlations between CPT data and settlement of a sand fill. The correlations by De Beer & Martens (1957), Schmertmann (1978), Peck et al. (1996) and Robertson (1990) were considered. From the total number of zone load tests, 43 test were selected which allowed for comparison of the results with the predictions using the mentioned correlations. It was concluded that the CPT to stiffness correlation of Robertson combined with the analytical model of Schmertmann corresponds very well with the measurements, consistently showing only small deviations from the measured settlement.

Conference number: 4
|Conference||4th International Symposium on Cone Penetration testing|
|Period||21/06/18 → 22/06/18|
|Other||CPT’18 will focus on the solution of geotechnical challenges using the cone penetration test (CPT), CPT add-on measurements and companion in-situ penetration tools (such as full flow and free fall penetrometers), with particular emphasis on practical experience and application of research findings. As CPTs play a major role in geo-engineering, CPT’18 will bring together the world’s experts who are working to improve the quality and reduce the difficulties involved. The symposium will be attended by academics, researchers, consultants, practitioners, hardware/software suppliers, certifiers and students. It will be a unique opportunity for meeting people and sharing high-level knowledge.|
