    Abstract

    A laboratory study was conducted to investigate the effect of cementation on the cone penetration resistance of sand. A new apparatus to form homogeneous artificially cemented sand specimens as well as uncemented ones, and a miniature quasi-static cone penetrometer were developed. Artificially cemented specimens with 1 and 2% cement content and relative densities ranging from 18 to 80% were tested. The penetration resistance of the cemented specimens was compared with those of comparable uncemented specimens. The influence of cement content and relative density of the specimens on their quasi-static cone penetration resistance was studied. The results indicate that cementation has a pronounced effect on the penetration resistance of sand.
