CPT is a commonly used In Situ testing method which is used to determine the geotechnical engineering properties of soils and assessing subsurface stratigraphy. Increased accuracy, speed of deployment, more continuous soil profile and reduced cost over other soil testing methods make CPT testing an attractive option while undertaking geotechnical investigations.
