Cone Penetration Testing

Main Content

Detailed cost-effective Geotechnical Site Characterization

Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) is a process whereby soil characteristics are determined when a cone penetrometer is driven into the subsurface.

CPT provides a rapid, reliable and economical means of determining soil stratigraphy, relative density, strength and hydrogeologic information.

Our in-house geologist can then provide you with the technical support necessary to accurately interpret the cone penetration data we provide and assist you in the design of your site investigation program.

  • Provides a continuous log of the soil profile
  • Real-time data enabling an accurate, on-site, lithologic subsurface representation
  • Ideal for sands, silts, clays, soft soils and mine tailings
  • Provides piezometric data in addition to geotechnical design parameters
  • Optional testing for seismic, resistivity, UVIF and gamma
  • Downhole Seismic Testing for P-wave and S-wave seismic wave velocities of the materials
  • Nilcon Vane Testing for in-situ measurements of undrained shear strength.
