ASTM

1 3 The electronic cone penetrometer test for environmental site characterization projects often requires steam cleaning the push rods and grouting the hole There are numerous ways of cleaning and grouting depending on the scope of the project local regulations and corporate preferences It is beyond the scope of this practice to discuss all of these methods in detail

The Use of Dynamic Cone Penetrometer to Predict

However the application of the dynamic cone penetration test in evaluating the resilient modulus of pavement subgrade soils is not well known The objective of this paper is to develop correlations to predict the resilient modulus of subgrade cohesive soils from the dynamic cone penetration test parameters soil type moisture content and dry
