The thermal cone penetration test (T-CPT) allows in situ measurement of the thermal properties of soil during a CPT-that is without withdrawing the CPT tool and introducing another tool such as a thermal needle probe. An interpretation method is presented based on one-dimensional axisymmetric analytical solutions. Numerical verification of...

Soil characterization of the upper 2 meters of the seabed is essential to optimize the design of hydrocarbon fields (mooring systems), wellheads, subsea completions, pipelines, anchors and mudmat foundations (Randolph, 2016). Additionally, it has an increasing importance for geohazard evaluation, particularly in submarine slides. In oceanic...

Houkes, C.B. (author)
This study focuses on three different, often used methods to determine rock strength: needle penetration, unconfined compression and shear box tests. The investigations were done on calcarenite that was taken directly from the construction site of the new A2 highway tunnel in Maastricht, the Netherlands. Besides determining the strength, it was...

In this study the applicability of the needle penetrometer is investigated. The needle penetrometer is a device which gives an indication of the Uniaxial Compressive Strength(UCS) by pushing a needle in a rock and measuring both the penetration depth and the applied force. More specific; research has been done to different needle types, the...

The needle penetrometer (NP) is a nondestructive, cheap and simple device which can be used indirectly to obtain the uniaxial compressive strength of extremely weak rocks. It requires little sample preparation and can be used in the field and laboratory and applied in natural and man-made structures where sampling is not allowed. The...
