CPT-based unit weight estimation extended to soft organic clays and peat - an update

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeConference contributionProfessional

Abstract

Various CPT-based correlations exist for the unit weight of natural soils. One such correlation includes organic soils (Lengkeek et al. 2018). This 2018 correlation is presented as a framework where the coefficients can be optimized and is based on predominantly Class 2 CPT records. This publication uses an expanded database which includes additional pairs of predominantly Class 1 CPT records selected from Holocene deposits in The Netherlands, on mineral clays, organic clays and peats. This results in a more extensive database and an improved CPT-based unit weight correlation for the whole range of soil types.
