This paper presents an overview of the DMT and of its design applications, in the light of the experience accumulated over the last 20 years. The following applications are discussed: determining common soil parameters, predicting settlements of shallow foundations, compaction control, detecting slip surfaces in clay slopes, predicting the behavior of laterally loaded piles, evaluating sand liquefiability, estimating consolidation/flow coefficients, selecting soil parameters for FEM analyses. The basic differences of the DMT compared to other penetration tests are also discussed.
