Pocket Penetrometer, Tubular soil penetration meter

The pocketable penetration meter is a device for quickly determining the resistance of the soil in undrained conditions. The resistance measured with the pocketable penetration meter is used to outline and classify the type of soil being inspected

Tubular soil penetration meter

The pocketable penetration meter is used for determining the resistance of the soil, in undrained conditions, to the penetration of the instrument. It is composed of two telescopic cylinders, which contain compression spring, and a tip which penetrates into the soil.

The instrument’s graduated scale displays the unconfined compressive strength (UCS) in MPa, as derived from the force required to drive the tool into the groundThe instrument is particulary useful during continuous surveying to classify cohesiv soils. The resistance measured with the pocketable penetration meter helps to determine the characteristics of the soil and provides useful information on its shear resistance.
