CONE PENETROMETER METHOD FOR:

Category:

LIQUID LIMIT DETERMINATION
STANDARDS: CEN ISO/TS 17892-12 | BS 1377:2 | NF P94-052-1
The test is based on the relationship between the moisture content at which clay soils pass from a plastic to a liquid state.
This value is obtained from the penetration capacity of the standard cone allowed to free fall into the sample for a period of 5 seconds.
SHEAR STRENGTH DETERMINATION
STANDARD: CEN ISO/TS 17892-06
The cone penetrometer is also suitable to measure the shear undrained strength of undisturbed and reconstituted soil samples as per
CEN ISO/TS 17892-06 Standard.
