Dynamic Cone Penetration (DCP)

LIGHT-WEIGHT MANUAL DYNAMIC PENETROMETERS

Model 16-T0012/C 8Kg Hammer, 57.5 cm fall FEATURES:
• Portable, hand-operated equipment.
• The TRL DCP is an instrument designed for the rapid insitu measurement of the structural properties of existing road pavements constructed with unbound materials.
• A typical test takes only a few minutes and therefore the instrument provides a very efficient method of obtaining information that would normally require the digging of test-pits.
• The results can be interprested and compared with CBR specifi cations for pavement design
• One year warrantee against any manufacturing defects.

LIGHT-WEIGHT MANUAL DYNAMIC PENETROMETERS

Model 16-T0012/A 8Kg Hammer, 57.5 cm fall FEATURES:
• Portable, hand-operated equipment.
• To obtain a direct evaluation of the “in-situ” strength properties of road pavement layers: the DCP has been correlated with CBR (California Bearing Ratio – Kleyn 1975).
• Field calibration of a portable dynamic cone penetrometer was made to determine a penetration resistance relationship with the standard penetration resistance.
• The penetrometer has been found useful in the inspection of footing foundations and for light fi eld exploration where the standard penetration range of limits is generally known
• One year warrantee against any manufacturing defects.

LIGHT-WEIGHT MANUAL DYNAMIC PENETROMETERS

Model K-100 4.6Kg Hammer, 57.5 cm fall FEATURES:
• This application describes measurement of the penetration rate of the model K-100 DCP(dynamic cone penetrometer)with a single mass or dual-mas.
• The K-100 Standard Kit measures the shear strength of soil with a CBR between 0.5-100. Affordably priced, this kit is for local engineers and geotech fi rms. With it the user can produce CBR value profi les in the fi eld. It comes with a 30″ drive rod (actual penetration depth 28 1/4″), 25 disposable cones and a cone adapter for fast and easy extraction of the instrument from hard soil.
• Additional disposable cones, cone adapters, and hardened points are available.
• One year warrantee against any manufacturing defects

Dual – Mass Dynamic Cone Penetrometer

SF-20 Dual-Mass Dynamic Cone Penetrometer is effective in soils with CBR values from 0.5 to 100. Penetration of higher-strength soils is assisted using the exclusive Dual-Mass Hammer Assembly. This 8kg (17.6lb) Hammer assembly is constructed of stainless steel. For better test values in weaker soils with CBR values of ten or less, the hammer quickly converts to a 4.6kg (10.1lb) unit. The kit includes a crush resistant Pelican case with transport wheels, the Dual-Mass Hammer assembly, 30in (76.2cm) Drive rod, and twenty five disposable cones with an adapter.

SF-10 Dynamic Cone Penetrometer measures shear strength in soils with CBR values from 10 to 100. This kit is ideal for occasional use in areas where very weak soils are not common. The single-mass 8kg (17.6lb) structural steel hammer is standard. 2″ depth rings are marked on the 37.75in (95.9cm) Drive Rod. Also included is one SFA-22 hardened point, manual & CD and 3-in-1 oil. The Manual provides look-up tables for to correlate blow counts with CBR and unit weight values. The SF-10 is not supplied with a field carrying case. Disposable cones, Adapters, and additional Hardened Points, are sold separately. Product Dimensions: 42x5x6in (1,067x127x152mm), WxDxH.
