<p>A detailed characterization of the shear wave velocity profile is an essential tool in the resolution of a variety of seismological and geotechnical engineering problems. The main objective of this study is to present equations capable of providing reliable shear wave velocity profile estimations based on CPTu parameters. The results of a series of pion...

Ultrasonic longitudinal wave velocity (Vp) and durability are characteristics largely determined in geotechnical evaluations. These properties are useful in the analysis of weathered rocks because they usually have good relationships with physical and mechanical properties of rocks. Additionally, the tests to obtain these parameters are easy to perform. However,...

<p>The purpose of this paper is to present geotechnical parameters of the variegated soils from the São Paulo Formation, aiming in particular to establish correlations between stress history parameters, earth pressure coefficients at rest, deformability modules and resistance obtained through piezocone and dilatometer tests. The perfo...

<p>Quality of compacted fills is essential to the proper functioning of a structure as a whole. Currently, quality<br /> control is achieved by testing to determine the deviation of moisture content of recently compacted soil in relation to<br /> optimum moisture and degree of compaction reached. Based on the results, deformability, permeabilit...
