CPT Analysis

In the CPT Analysis tab, the global CPT parameters are defined:

  • default CPT Classification type (Robertson 1986, Robertson 1990, Schneider 2008 options are available)
  • Atmospheric Pressure
  • Net Area Ratio
  • Cone Factor
  • Filter Data parameters

Note that these parameters can also be edited (globally) from the CPT Input dialog, by clicking on the CPT Options button.

Filter Data

The Bandwidth Thickness and Filter Constant can be defined. The filtering procedure is outlined in the CPT Theory Manual.

Units

The following unit convention is used for the input properties parameters for CPT interpretation calculations in Settle3. Imperial input data is converted to SI units in the engine.
