This paper illustrates the application of the self-boring pressuremeter test and the seismic dilatometer test to acquire the in-situ decay curves of stiffness with shear strain level (G-γ decay curves) of three types of structural soil, which are granite residual soil, structural soft soil and expansive soft rock. The proposed approach in combines the functions of SBPT and SDMT to provide the high standard of accuracy for the small-strain stiffness (from SDMT) and the major attenuation stage of stiffness (from SBPT). Using the proposed mathematical model can properly describe the tendency in typical in-situ G-γ decay curves based on the data of tests. To analyse the suitability of the proposed approach, the G-γ curve obtain from the resonant column test of granite residual soil is also employed to compare with the in-situ curves. The shear modulus G obtained from laboratory tests is found to be smaller and the stiffness attenuation rate is found to be faster than the curve of the in-situ test, which reflects the process of sampling, transporting and preparation of soil samples could cause unrecoverable damages in soil.
