Numerical Simulation Of The Pressuremeter Test

Authors : Barhmi M. . Khachab H. . Berga A. .


The pressuremeter is an in –situ test, based on the application of static loading by introducing a cylindrical probe into a borehole ,this teste having essential objective to determine the relation -ship between the pressure applied to the ground and the displacement of the borehole wall. In our study, we present a literature search on this test and the essential detail of the theoretical and analytical study of the expansion of a cylindrical cavity. A numerical modeling of the pressuremeter test is possible and can proccure the information sought.
