Paper Title:
Multifunctional Piezocone Penetration Testing in Geotechnical Practice
  Abstract

Cone penetration test is a fast and efficient in-situ test technique. With the development of sensor technology and the use of new probes, such test is employed in more fields and reveals more soil parameters. Based on advanced CPTU equipment, soil types were classified. As CPTU has the function of porewater pressure test, the value of porewater pressure varies a lot when the soil changes, which is shown clearly in the CPTU feature map. So it can be easier to judge soil boundaries and its result is in good agreement with the borehole. Multi-function CPTU system is equip with SCPTU module, which enable to measure shear wave velocity of the soil easily. To meet the needs of conventional CPT equipment, the relationships between shear wave velocity measured by SCPTU and other CPT indexes were analyzed; then, two empirical formulas which suitable for kinds of soils are proved more consistent with the measured results, so it is a good method to estimate shear wave velocity without seismic wave test. With a view to get greater economic and technical benefits, more cone penetration testing experience in different regions should be accumulated for geotechnical engineering investigation and design.
