    Abstract

    A standard practice is suggested for the preparation of the borehole in which the pressuremeter probe is to be inserted. The practice covers the required diameter of the hole, the various drilling tools and methods used to place the probe, the test spacing and testing sequence, and the way to judge the quality of the borehole and of the test. This practice is an adjunct to the suggested practice for pressuremeter testing in soils.
