P010 SEISMIC CPT MEASUREMENTS 1 For new constructions or reconstructions a comprehensive description of the ground is needed. This includes knowledge about the site history and long-term loads the soil was exposed to (e.g. consolidation creeping maturing). In this context the prediction of ground deformation is one of the most important topics in geotechnical engineering where the numerical calculations require parameters like soil stiffness. In most cases local site tests such as Cone Penetration Tests (CPT) and load bearing tests as well as laboratory tests are used to estimate soil stiffness. However due to the assumption of homogeneity of subsurface
