As a civil engineer to check the geotechnical properties of soil, three guests must be performed the shear test, bearing test, and penetration test.
A penetration test is performed by three methods,
In Geotechnical engineering, the value of standard penetration test is widely used for determining technical properties of soil.
This test is globally used to determine various engineering and geotechnical properties for soil investigations.
It provides information about Geotechnical properties of soil and furnishes data about resistance of the soils to penetration which can be used to evaluate standard strength data, such as N value of the soil.
N = number of blows per 30 cm of penetration using standard split spoon.
it is a procedure to obtain undisturbed samples at varying depths so that we can find cohesion, C and angle of internal friction, ???? which are used to find the bearing capacity of soils.
