  • Abstract:
    This manual presents procedures and guidelines applicable to the use of the cone penetration test. Dr. Schmertmann prepared this manual in February 1977 and made minor additions in May 1978. It represents his interpretation of the state-of-the-art in Dutch static cone testing as of February 1977. Its contents should provide assistance and uniformity to engineers concerned with the interpretation of the data obtained from such testing. Only geotechnical engineers familiar with the fundamentals of soil mechanics and foundation engineering should use this manual. The manual includes: (1) Introduction and review of the general principals concerning cone penetrometer testing; (2) Individual design chapters which address topics such as: pile design, shear strength estimation, settlement calculation and compaction control; (3) Appendices which present previously published, pertinent information on cone penetrometer testing.
