Abstract [en]

This paper presents results from a somewhat unusual application, where CPT was performed inclined in order to investigate the overlapping zone in lime-cement column rows. The column rows had been subjected to large movements due to an embankment failure. The discussion touches upon the evaluation of strength properties, advantages and major drawbacks. The results show that the upper part of the column rows was held together in spite of the fact that the rows had been subjected to large movements. However, the value of using CPT with respect to the assessment of strength properties is strongly questioned due to the small probe size.
