Paper Title:
Further Study on the Application of Self-Boring Pressuremeter Test in Clays
  Abstract

The self-boring pressuremeter test has potential advantages over the conventional in situ method in the geotechnical investigation. It not only provides fundamental soil properties for the designer, but also plays more important role in the geotechnical analysis. With help of Cambridge self-boring model pressuremeter tests, some new application are studied in this paper as following: (1) Analysis of stress paths in clays adjacent to the cavity wall during self-boring pressuremeter test; (2) Experimental investigation on stiffness of soils at small strain under non-linear analysis; and (3) Study on magnitude of the changes in pore-water pressure of clays, which will help to enlarge the application of self-boring pressuremeter test in geotechnical engineering.
