Excess Pore Pressure Dissipation Characteristics of Different Soil by CPTU on Pearl River Delta
Through a lot of CPTU excess pore pressure dissipation tests on Pearl River Delta in China, excess pore pressure dissipation characteristics of different soil layer on Guangzhou-Zhuhai section of Beijing-Zhuhai Expressway and Taishan section of Guangdong West Coast Expressway has been analyzed. The dissipation time of 50% dissipation degree t50 of excess pore pressure dissipation curve by CPTU can be used as the auxiliary method to determine the type of soil, and through CPTU excess pore pressure dissipation tests, the t50 value of sand soil, silt, silty clay, clay soil and silt soil has been obtained; through comparison with the t50 value of different soil, the difference of sand soil, silt and clay soil can be roughly distinguished; the obvious boundary value between the t50 value of clay soil, silty clay and silt soil is not existed, so the t50 value can not be direct to determine the type of these clay type of soil. The achieved results can provide a research foundation for CPTU application research on Pearl River Delta in China.
