  • The Vane Cone: A New Device for Soil Shear Strength Measurement

    A considerable number of in-situ tests have been devised for measuring field soil shear strength parameters. These tests include, among many others, cone penetration and vane shear devices. The conventional form of each of these two devices controls the type of soil deformation, which may limit the use of the measured soil shear resistance data. In this study both vane and cone devices were ...

  • Studies with Centrifuge Vane and Penetrometer Apparatus in a Normal Gravity Field

    Small vane and penetrometer devices have been developed to measure soil properties in models during centrifuge operation. To aid the interpretation of vane data from centrifuge models a series of tests was conducted in cakes of kaolin clay in a normal gravity field. In the experimental program the effects of disturbance during insertion, delay between insertion and rotation, rate of rotation and ...

  • Measuring Offshore Wind Resources

    To select the right offshore wind site, estimate the future energy output of a wind farm, and determine the best layout for the turbines, project developers must conduct wind resource assessment (WRA) campaigns on site. This is a critical phase of the successful development of wind farms. WRA campaigns on terrestrial sites have traditionally been performed using meteorological towers equipped ...
