This rfile specifies standards for oblique investigations of soil via dynamic probing as a part of geotechnical research and checking out based on EN 1997-1 and EN 1997-2.
This record covers the selection of the resistance of soils and tender rocks in situ to the dynamic penetration
of a cone. A hammer of a given mass and given top of fall is used to force the cone. The penetration resistance
is outlined because the variety of blows required to force the cone over an outlined distance. a continual checklist is
provided with appreciate to intensity yet no samples are recovered.
Four techniques are incorporated, overlaying quite a lot of particular paintings in keeping with blow:
- dynamic probing mild (DPL): try out representing the decrease finish of the mass variety of dynamic apparatus;
- dynamic probing medium (DPM): attempt representing the medium mass variety of dynamic apparatus;
- dynamic probing heavy (DPH): try representing the medium to very heavy mass variety of dynamic gear;
- dynamic probing large heavy (DPSH): attempt representing the higher finish of the mass variety of dynamic
The attempt result of this rfile are in particular fitted to the qualitative choice of a soil profile including
direct investigations (e. g. sampling in accordance with prEN ISO 22475-1) or as a relative comparability of alternative in situ exams.
They can also be used for the choice of the power and deformation houses of soils, as a rule of the cohesionless variety but additionally in all likelihood in fine-grained soils, via acceptable correlations. the consequences is also used to figure out the intensity to very dense floor layers e. g. to figure out the size of finish bearing piles, and to notice very unfastened, voided, back-filled or infilled flooring.

1(e), the dashed lines are already beginning to take on this form. It is important to notice that the total area of the vertical bars for each plot equals 1. This is true no matter what the value of n, and thus the area under the smooth normal error distribution curve is equal to 1. If an event has a probability of 1, it is certain to occur, and therefore the area under the curve represents the sum of all the probabilities of the occurrence of errors. 2) where f (x ) is the probability density function, e the base of natural logarithms, x the error, and σ the standard error as defined in Chapter 2.
As mentioned previously, this is the midpoint of a sample set when arranged in ascending or descending order. One-half of the data are above the median and one-half are below it. When there are an odd number of quantities, only one such value satisfies this condition. For a data set with an even number of quantities, the average of the two observations that straddle the midpoint is used to represent the median. Due to the relatively small number of observations in surveying, it is seldom used. 3.
To create a histogram, the data are divided into classes. These are subregions of data that usually have a uniform range in values, or class width. Although there are no universally applicable rules for the selection of class width, generally 5 to 20 classes are used. As a rule of thumb, a data set of 30 values may have only five or six classes, whereas a data set of 100 values may have as many as 15 to 20 classes. In general, the smaller the data set, the lower the number of classes used. The histogram class width (range of data represented by each histogram bar) is determined by dividing the total range by the number of classes to be used.
