ABSTRACT

In this study, relationship between dynamic penetration values and seismic cross-hole
values is investigated. The research pits were opened at a depth of 4m in place
performed of the dynamic penetration test. In this pit were applied seismic cross-hole
studies. Compressional and shear wave velocities were determined from seismic crosshole
studies. The relationships between N value of the dynamic penetration and these
velocities were obtained in sandy soils. Consequently, the result of this study showed
that the correlation coefficient between them is over 80%.
