Dual-Mass Dynamic Cone Penetrometer

The Standard DCP Kit measures the shear strength of soil with a CBR (California Bearing Ratio) between 0.5-100% and psf from 455-7072. This single-operator kit is ideal for state/county/city highway departments and geotech firms. CBR and psf can be estimated in the field from tables in the manual and plotted using Corps of Engineers Excel template included on CD. It comes with a stainless steel dual-mass (17.6/10.1 lb) hammer and quick-connect upper rod, 30 inch drive rod (27 ¼ inch penetration), a 40 inch vertical scale, upper and lower scale mounts, a roll of marking tape with pen, a reusable hardened point and a disposable cone adapter with 25 disposable cones for fast and easy extraction of the instrument from hard/cohesive soil.
