Dynamic cone penetration

The Dynamic Cone Penetration, designated as DCP originally from South Africa in 1975.

The relevant information is the estimation of the underlying granular layers thickness and to obtain the DCP index of each layer to correlate with the CBR.

This assay can be made in field, on the following conditions:

• Inside the core hole;

• In the pits;

• And for last, on the embankments platform without revetment.
