Abstract
The most commonly used sampling method is the tube sampling and constitutes a core activity in site investigation. During the process –that encompass boring, sampling, storate and extrusion- the sample may suffer significant disturbance and the soil may no longer be representative of the in situ state. Traditionally, this problem has been studied by approximated analytical methods, such as the Strain Path Method but very limited numerical work has been performed on the process. Realistic numer...
