Static Cone Penetrometer
Evaluate the consistency, compaction and bearing of fine grained, soft soils.
The static cone penetrometer is used to evaluated the consistency of soils, their level of compaction and the bearing capacity of shallow foundations and pavement subgrades. Specifically developed for use in fine grained soils, particularly soft soils, to depths of 30’. They use a 60° vertex angled cone with an area of 1.5 sq. cm.
