DYNAMIC CONE PENETROMETER
- Efficient method
The Dynamic Cone Penetrometer is used for the rapid, in situ measurement of structural properties of existing road pavement constructed with unbound materials.
It incorporates an 8 kg weight dropping through a height of 575 mm and 60° cone having a diameter of 20 mm. with the standard DCP measurements can be made down to a depth of approximately 850 mm or when extension shafts are used to a recommended maximum depth of 2 m.
Readings are usually taken after a set number of blows, changing the number according to the strength of the layer being penetrated.
