With constant pressure to become more cost-efficient, engineers are opting to become more sophisticated in their sampling methods. For example, engineers are increasingly calling out CPT to better dial in the formation class, potentially saving on the foundation and ultimately the project cost. New engineers coming up the curve grew up using CPT and are naturally choosing to leverage its advantages. CPT advantages include:
Continuous Formation Data:
The continuous log reveals layers of dissimilar materials which can be missed with conventional drilling and interval sampling methods.
Real-Time, On-Site Interpretation of Results:
Logs can be used to obtain soil type, water table and soil parameters for engineering design.
Rates 1.5 to 3 times faster than conventional drilling and sampling result in more cost-effective exploration.
All this means an upswing in CPT. And with more than 20 years experience, Geoprobe® is here to help. Whether you have years of experience or are just getting into CPT, we have the technical team to set you up right with:
