Let me start by saying I am a structural engineer, I am in no way a geotechnical eng. Kudos to anyone that understands soil
I have a some offshore cone penetration test (CPT) data (qc, fs, u2, Fr etc.). I am modelling some piles in SACS offshore (Bentley structural software) and need to model the soil using t-z (load-transfer) curves.
Is there a method (theoretical or otherwise) that will allow me to convert my CPT data to t-z curves??
The papers I've found suggest that there is a method but none of the articles I can access have elaborated.
Any help would be appreciated.
