This paper presents the preliminary results of field studies based on data from flat dilatometer tests (DMT) and the comparisons of measured vs DMT-predicted settlements. The study is part of a research project aimed at the characterization/modeling of the Venetian soils. A key feature of the project was the construction of a full-scale instrumented embankment (40 m diameter, 6.7 m height, applied load = 104 kPa) at the site of Treporti. The soil, typical of the Venice lagoon, is highly stratified and remarkably non homogeneous. Deformation moduli M obtained from DMT were used to predict settlements by using the "traditional" 1-D approach.
