Abstract
Permeability is important in many geotechnical applications. The current CPTu practice to obtain permeability values relies on dissipation tests, which are frequently slow and only linked to permeability through compressibility measures. On-the-fly methods offer an alternative approach in which permeability is directly linked to CPTu penetration measurements. Several on-the-fly methods have been proposed and their applicability and relative advantages are not fully clear. Numerical effective str...
