The standardized cone – penetrometer test (CPT) involves pushing a 3.58 cm diameter 60o cone through the underlying ground at a rate 1-2 cm/s. the CPT can be very effective in site characterization, especially site with discrete stratigraphic horizons or discontinuous lenses. The methodology was adopted by ASTM D 3441. the CPT is a valuable method of assessing subsurface stratigraphy associated with soft materials, discontinous lenses, organic materials (peats), potentially liquefiable materials (silt and sands), and landslides. CPT can be easily and quickly mobilize to site and relatively quick simple and economical. The main disadvantages are not obtaining a soil sample for viasual/laboratory inspection, and sometimes serveral limited depth capanility.
