Ball penetrometer testing
Monotonic and cyclic BPT tests can be performed to provide continuous and accurate in-situ undrained shear strength and residual shear strength profiles of very soft to firm fine-grained soils, especially for applications in pipeline and anchor designs.
PROD deploys 60mm diameter hardened smooth spherical ball penetrometers (BPT), equipped with individual sensors for ball resistance (qb), and pore pressure at ball mid-height (ub). The ball is attached to a 20mm diameter by 200mm long, high tensile push rod with friction reducing outer sleeve and is connected at its other end to a standard 36mm cone shaft that is in turn attached to an 88mm diameter, customized PROD drill rod.
