This report is an evaluation of the seismic piezocone for geotechnical design parameters. The seismic piezocone is a “direct-push” device that is hydraulically pushed into the ground at a constant rate of 2 cm/sec. During penetration, the device measures the resistance at the tip and along the side. The device also measures the water pressure due to the soil penetration. Based on these measured parameters, a number of correlations have been developed to determine a vast number of soil properties that include; undrained shear strength, stress history, compressibility, and soil classification.

Utilizing the piezocone data from a number of research sites throughout New Jersey
and one in New York, the two procedures described earlier to estimate the N-value from
piezocone data were compared to measured SPT N-values within close proximity to the
piezocone tests. Comparisons were made to SPT N-values corrected to 60% of the
theoretical energy and also to SPT N-values that are uncorrected for any type of energy
effect. A recommendation was made as to which estimation procedure is better for
geotechnical design purposes.
