Contribution to the analysis of Marchetti dilatometer application


Abstract

The principle of Marchetti dilatometer testing procedure is presented and some soil parameters are interpreted on the basis of test results. Authors analyze the effect of faulty estimate of the in situ pore pressure u0 (NPV) on interpretation of soil parameters: type of soil, undrained strength and compressibility modulus. It was established that the error in interpretation of the above parameters, as resulting from erroneous u0 estimate, is negligible at the stage of preliminary geotechnical analyses. It is stressed that the use of this test is therefore justified.
