The Importance of the Stress Histories of Cohesive Soils and the Cone Penetration Test

The paper emphasises the importance of the stress histories of cohesive soils, particularly in relation to the prediction of settlements of building structures. A method of recognising and assessing the overconsolidation icepressure from static cone penetration tests is introduced, together with cone factors related to overconsolidation pressures. S. Thorburn, C.L. Laird and W.M. Reid
