    Abstract

    The availability of reliable methods for measuring cone penetration resistance and shear wave velocity in centrifuge models is important in order to fully characterize the soil. It is particularly important for soil deposits assessed for liquefaction potential. The paper presents the results of two centrifuge experiments performed at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to characterize saturated granular soil deposits using in-flight Cone Penetration Test (CPT). The two experiments are performed on saturated Ottawa F#55 sand deposits placed at 40% and 75% relative densities. The cone penetration resistance is measured at 50 g. The measured values of cone penetration resistance and shear wave velocity are analyzed and compared to theoretical predictions.
