Cone penetration tests are a good option for in situ tests in case of soft, fine‐grained soils. Thus, they are often used for subsoil investigations in the Salzburger Becken, which mainly consists of silty, fine‐sandy sediments. Unfortunately, empirical correlations for the determination of soil parameters from cone penetration tests in case of silty, fine‐sandy soils are very rare in literature. This contribution should help to evaluate the known correlations and correlation factors for the determination of soil stiffness based on cone penetration tests regarding their applicability for the Salzburger Seeton. This is done by the comparison of cone penetration test results with results from laboratory tests.
