Apart from correcting and adjusting soil behavior type characterizations, pore pressure data can be used in a variety of ways, with the most important being the ability to estimate the groundwater conditions! Read Vertek's latest post for more information!
In practically all projects of site characterization, as well as geo-environmental and remediation applications understanding ground water conditions is a key aspect. Ground water conditions involve estimating the depth of the water table, as well as the direction and rate of groundwater flow and CPTu data can be used towards that direction.
Information can be obtained through multiple CPTu soundings to generate a 3-D model of the subsurface hydrogeologic conditions and specify the necessary parameters, such as direction and velocity of groudwater flow, spatial distribution of hydraulic conductivity etc) to be used for deep foundation design, site investigations and remediation design.
