Developed by the Army Corps of Engineers, Dynamic Cone Penetrometers (DCPs) provide a low-cost, efficient test method for quickly determining in situ California Bearing Ratio (CBR) values of pavement base, subbase, and subgrades. They can readily be used for depths up to 30" and up to 6', with optional drive rods and extensions. This model complies with ASTM D6951 specifications and comes with a chart to compute CBR values. DCPs cover a CBR range from < .05 to 100% and a bearing value range from 430 to 10,800 psf.
The Dual Mass DCP Kit measures the shear strength of soil with a CBR between 0.5-100% and from 430 to 10,800 psf. This single-operator kit is ideal for City, County, and State Highway Departments, along with Geotech firms. CBR and psf can be estimated in the field from tables in the manual. It comes with a Stainless Steel Dual Mass DCP (17.5/10. lb.) Hammer and Quick Connect Upper Rod, 30” Drive Rod (27-1/4” penetration), 40” Aluminum Scale, Scale Guide Set, Dual Mass DCP Hard Cone Tip, and a Disposable Cone Tip Adapter with 25 Dual Mass DCP Disposable Tips for fast and easy extraction of the instrument from hard/cohesive soil. This kit also includes a crush-proof carrying case with transport wheels and a wrench set.
