In Alberta, Canada, the Standard Penetration Test (SPT) is commonly used to determine the soil parameters and characteristics at a specific site. The Cone Penetration Test (CPT) is also used to evaluate soil parameters, but it provides more detailed and accurate results compared to the SPT. There are several correlations between the SPT and CPT that can be used to estimate the soil parameters from CPT data. Here are a few examples:

It is important to note that these correlations are based on assumptions and may not be applicable to all soil conditions. It is always recommended to use the most accurate and reliable data available for geotechnical design.
