Push-in pressure cells are commonly used in the UK to measure in-situ stress. In common with all direct measurement techniques, the stress state of the soil is altered as the cell is advanced into the ground. This leads to an overestimate in the magnitude of the in-situ stress measured by the cells. In this paper, the existing approaches for interpreting measurements are reviewed, together with a proposed numerical technique to quantify the effect that the undrained shear strength may have on stresses measured following installation.
