Abstract

Measuring soil variability has many challenges. One of the challenges is soil deformation, which can change the spatial correlation structure arising from the original geological processes. In particular, this is important in the assessment of existing structures. In this paper, the effect of existing structures on the horizontal spatial correlation is investigated using a dataset consisting of 100 CPTs in close proximity. These data were collected under and adjacent to a dyke structure which has caused considerable deformations. Using CPTs in zones where deformation has not occurred has allowed a quantification of this effect. The impact of the dyke is shown to dominate the natural scale of fluctuation.
