15) represents an ideal condition, where energy losses related to the penetration process are not computed. g. Skempton, 1986). 15). 16) As recently postulated by Aoki and Cintra (2000), the work effectively delivered to the soil can be derived from the principles of energy conservation, known as Hamilton’s principle. The principle states that the time variation of kinetic and potential energies, summed with the work done by non-conservative forces during a given time interval, is equal to zero.

Massarsch, 2004; Randolph, 2004). g. Clayton, 1993). 10 Force and acceleration measurement system. 11 Detailed view of instrumentation: (a) complete load cell, (b) mounting of accelerometers and (c) strain gauge placement. and engineers take the simplified route of assuming in every soil type either a drained penetration representative of a cohesionless soil or an undrained penetration representative of a cohesive geomaterial. Characterization and classification Characterization and classification using the SPT is possible because at every depth the test combines a sample with a measurement of penetration resistance.

2) The velocity of the wave propagation c is defined as x/ t and should be distinguished from the velocity V of the particles in the compressed zone of the bar produced by compressive forces and defined as u/ t. 4 Idealized representation of the action of a hammer. where ac is the particle acceleration (= V/Δt), m the rod mass (= ρ A Δx) and ρ the mass per unit volume of the bar (in the case of steel it can be assumed to be 7,810 kg/m3). 7) An equation for wave propagation can now be derived by combining Hooke’s law with Newton’s law.
