The dataset contains 1339 cone penetration tests (CPT, CPTu, SCPT, SCPTu) executed within Austria and Germany by the company Premstaller Geotechnik ZT GmbH. As a first processing step, core drillings, located within a maximum distance of approximately 50 m to the insitu tests, were assigned to these cone penetration tests, which allow an interpretation of the insitu measurements based on its grain size distribution. In a second step, the software Geologismiki was used to calculate various normalized measures, which can e.g. be used as input parameters for soil behaviour type charts. The present data can be utilized by researches for example to develop new approaches related to soil classification based on cone penetration test. Furthermore, it provides a framework for combining insitu measurements (q c, f s, R f, u 2, V s), normalized measures (i.e. Q t, B q, U 2) and soil classifications.
