Young's modulus


Terzaghi and Peck (1948)

correlation valid for clean sand and sand with gravel without account of the effective pressure




Schmertmann  et al. (1978)

correlation valid for various lithotypes



Parameters a, b and c assume different values and depend on lithology and the presence of fine material.


Schultze and Menzenbach (1961)

correlation valid for various lithotypes


D'Appolonia et al., 1970

correlation valid for sand, SC sand, NC sand and gravel
