Abstract

This research is aimed at the development of a new hydraulic conductivity measurement device using CPT technology that has a function of water pumping. This device measures flow rate and pressure of water inflow taken from an intake installed in the CPT probe. As a result of FEM (Finite Element Method) analysis to simulate the water low, it became clear that the relationship between the coefficient of permeability and the measured data can lie expressed as a simple multiplication formula with a constant. The constant, namely, a calibration factor which relates measured data to the coefficient of permeability, is also suggested in this paper. Moreover, to examine the actual behaviour of the water flow, two dimensional model tests are conducted with various sands and then the capability of the proposed method is verified.
