Abstract

This paper comments on the results obtained by a large number of Seismic Dilatometer. Tests (SDMT) executed in the area of L’Aquila (Italy) following the April 6, 2009 earthquake. SDMT. soundings were executed by the normal penetration procedure only in a limited number of sites, mostly. in silt. At the majority of the sites, in coarse-grained non-penetrable soils, Vs measurements by SDMT — . but not the other DMT parameters — were obtained in backfilled boreholes, using the technique briefly. described in the paper. The test results illustrated in the paper include: (a) SDMT results obtained by the. normal penetration procedure, (b) Vs-only profiles obtained by the backfilling procedure, (c) comparisons. of Vs profiles obtained by SDMT and by other techniques (Down-Hole, Cross-Hole, surface waves tests),. and (d) comparisons of profiles of Vs measured by SDMT and estimated from mechanical DMT data.
