Dataset for Quantifying CPT cone factors in clays derived from weathered mudstone

This dataset contains data from a ground investigation in weathered, stiff, fissured clays of the Lias Group. In the paper, "Quantifying CPT cone factors in clays derived from weathered mudstone", these data are used to evaluate the performance of cone penetration test (CPT) profiles for predicting the undrained shear strength of these clays.

The dataset consists of a table including 94 pairs of corrected CPT cone factors (N_{kt,UU}), derived from a one-to-one comparison of 94 pairs of triaxial shear strength data from unconsolidated, undrained triaxial tests and CPT cone tip resistance data from equivalent depths.

Keywords:
Mudstone, Lias Group, Cone penetration test, Undrained shear strength, Cone factors
Subjects:

Data collection method:

This data was collected as part of a commercial ground investigation by multiple contractors in Oxfordshire, UK. The data was provided by HS2 Ltd in the AGS4 Data Format. Full details of the methodology may be found in the "Materials and method" section of the associated paper.

Additional information:

The table is presented as a plain text CSV file. The first row contains headers, some of which are defined in the AGS4 Data Format; the second row identifies the units used.
