... Careful evaluation of the in-situ lateral stress is important for many marine applications. Advanced versions of the self-boring pressuremeter (SBPM) allow assessment of these insitu horizontal stresses in three different directions. Full advantage of the multiple measurements is best achieved...

... The self-boring pressuremeter test is ideally suitable for determining in-situ engineering properties of sand. A new method for the determination of the friction angle is presented that accounts for the non-linear volume change behaviour of loose sands. The determination of shear modulus from...
