WHY DO WE RUN THE VANE SHEAR TEST SO SLOWLY?

The peak torque is usually observed within 20° of rotation. The Piezocone Penetration Test (CPTu), which can test one vertical linear meter of soil in approximately 50 seconds, is much faster than the VST. In silty-soils the CPTu penetration resistance can be partially drained and may vary with penetration rate.
