Abstract

The 3rd International Conference on the Flat Dilatometer was held June 14-16, 2015 at the Parco dei Principi Grand Hotel in Rome (Italy). The 3rd conference followed the successful series of international Conferences held in Edmonton (1983) and Washington D.C. (2006). The theme of the Conference is the solution of geotechnical problems using the Flat Dilatometer Test (DMT). More and more in the years has emerged the centrality of the parameter Kd, one of the few in situ parameters able to provide information on stress history, whose knowledge is fundamental for reasonable predictions of settlements and liquefaction resistance. Another emerging trend is the necessity of an in situ multiparameter approach, because the soil has many unknowns. The attached USB key comprises the Proceedings of the Washington 2006 DMT Conference, courtesy of Roger Failmezger organizer of that Conference. Appendix B of this book contains the Table of Contents of the 2006 Conference. The book is organized in the following themes: Case Studies of Projects using Dilatometer Tests; Compaction Control; Correlations and Comparisons with other Lab or In Situ Tests; Detection and Characterization of Liquefiable Layers; New Testing Developments (Seismic and Other Instrumentation); Theoretical and Numerical Evaluations of the DMT; and Applications in Difficult Geomaterials.
