Static probing

Static CPT probes with Begeman mechanical coning and CPTU probes with electrical coning (among others for pore pressure measurements) become more and more popular methods of recognition of types and conditions of grounds. These modern surveying methods successfully supplement classic drills allowing to specify the following leading parameters: degree of plasticity and compaction of grounds directly within a particular ground medium (material) taking into consideration of all the impacts and interactions of surrounding grounds, humidity and water accumulation.

Application

Identification of geotechnical structures
