- \varphi = 27.12 + 0.2857N\, \left( {r^{2} = 0.998} \right);\,for \,N = 4 to 50. (4)

## What is N value of soil?

The measured N-value (blows/0.3 m) is the so-called **standard penetration resistance of the soil**. The penetration resistance is influenced by the stress conditions at the depth of the test.... continue reading ›

## What do n values mean?

n-value, also known as the strain hardening exponent, is **the measure of a metal's response to cold working**. Cold working is the plastic deformation of metal below its recrystallization temperature and this is used in many manufacturing processes, such as wire drawing, forging and rolling.... see more ›

## What is N value correction?

**This correction is applied on the N-value corrected for over burden pressure (N')**. If the stratum (during testing) consists of fine sand & silt below water table, the corrected N-value (N') has to be further corrected to get the final corrected value N”.
