Guide to Cone Penetration Testing for Geotechnical Engineering

The purpose of this guide is to provide a concise resource for the application of the CPT to geotechnical engineering practice. This guide is a supplement and update to the book ‘CPT in Geotechnical Practice’ by Lunne, Robertson and Powell (1997). This guide is applicable primarily to data obtained using a standard electronic cone with a 60-degree apex angle and either a diameter of 35.7 mm or 43.7 mm (10 or 15 cm2 cross-sectional area). Recommendations are provided on applications of CPT data for soil profiling, material identification and evaluation of geotechnical parameters and design. The companion book provides more details on the history of the CPT, equipment, specification and performance, as well as details on geo-environmental applications. The book also provides extensive background on interpretation techniques. This guide provides only the basic recommendations for the application of
the CPT for geotechnical design
