geotechnical characteristic parameters

Determination of geotechnical characteristic parameters

The article “Determination of geotechnical characteristic parameters” follows the base principles of the Eurocode. “The characteristic value of a geotechnical parameter shall be selected as a cautious estimate of the value affecting the occurrence of the limit state.” [EC7- 2.4.5.2 2(P)] Defining the geotechnical characteristic value means therefore to choose the geotechnical parameter that influences…
