Stress history is important, as it significantly increases moduli and, in sand, liquefaction resistance.
It is well known that oedometer moduli M are not constant, but vary with the applied vertical load.
The Stress History parameter KD by DMT is considerably more sensitive to Stress History than other in situ tools.
DMT dissipation Interpretation, dissipation test in cohesive soils, validation of consolidation coefficient DMT vs. other dissipation tests.
The DMT Material Index ID is an index helpful for identifying the soil composition (sand, silt, clay).
