Dynamic Cone Penetrometers (DCP) provide quick field determinations of soil shear strengths at depths up to 6ft (1.8m), with optional extensions. This accurate and portable field equipment measures soil properties that can be related to CBR or Resilient Modulus laboratory values. Original design by United States Army Corps of Engineers meets ASTM requirements. The DCP bridges the gap between laboratory pavement design and construction quality assurance.
Penetration resistance from the sliding hammer is measured in blows per millimeter. Cone diameter of the point is larger than the rod to ensure driving energy is not lost to skin friction on the rods. The driven points are available as multi-use Hardened Steel or single-use Disposable Cones. The Disposable Cones are abandoned in place and often used when points would be difficult to extract. Both cones have a maximum diameter of 0.790in (20.1mm) tapering at a 60° angle to a point. Rods assemble easily with quick-connect pin fittings and can be driven to a depth of about 28¼ in (718mm). Optional extension rods with threaded connections can be purchased separately for testing to greater depths. View our full line of soil penetrometers.
