When properly performed at suitable sites, the test provides a rapid means for determining subsurface conditions. Within Section 13 on Calculations, SI metric units are considered the standard.

Cone tip projected area is commonly referred to in square centimetres for convenience. Porewater pressure dissipation, after a push, can also be monitored for correlation to time rate of consolidation and permeability. The various data reported should be displayed in mutually compatible units as agreed to by the client or user.

The various data reported should be displayed in mutually compatible units as agreed to by the client or user.

However, many of the procedural requirements herein could apply to those penetrometers. The use of a friction sleeve and porewater pressure element can provide an estimate of soil classification, and correlations with engineering properties of soils. Cone tip projected area is commonly referred to in square centimetres for convenience. Other commonly used units such as asm inch-pound system are shown in brackets.

Tests v5778 using this test method provide a detailed record of cone resistance which is useful for evaluation of site stratigraphy, homogeneity and depth to firm layers, voids or cavities, and other discontinuities.

This aztm tests the soil in-situ and soil samples are not obtained. The atm stated in each system are not equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other. Users of this standard are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in itself assure reliable results.

Porewater pressure dissipation, after a push, can also be monitored for correlation to time rate of consolidation and d5778. Reliable results depend on many factors and Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors. The use of an inclinometer is highly recommended since it will provide information on potentially damaging situations during the sounding process.

Field tests using mechanical-type penetrometers are covered elsewhere by Test Method D Active view current version astk standard. This test method provides data used for estimating engineering properties of soil intended to help with the design and construction of earthworks, the foundations for structures, and the behavior of soils under static and dynamic loads.
