Abstract: During the construction of an important foundation with high-capacity bored piles anchored in a shale of variable quality, a technique new to Canada has been used to control the quality of the rock and to determine the necessary depth of embedment of the piles. This technique consists of carrying out in situ shearing tests in boreholes below the presumed base of the piles with mean of a "Ménard pressuremeter". These tests allow a direct measurement of an elastic modulus and of a particular shearing resistance…
