Abstract

A series of CPT and skirt penetration tests have been conducted in carbonate silty sand in a range of drainage conditions ranging from fully drained to fully undrained. The drainage transition response for each has been quantified in order to provide guidance in how to use the results from field CPTs to predict soil resistance during the installation of skirted foundations.
