    Geotechnical engineers in the United States commonly use the results of the ASTM Penetration Test and Split-Barrel Sampling of Soils (D 1586) in subsurface investigations for routine foundation design. Wide variations occur in standard penetration test (SPT) results because the present standard does not address some of the variables that control the energy delivered to the sampler. Current methods of performing the SPT in the United States were surveyed and the results are reported and interpreted. The purpose of the survey was to aid in bringing current practice to a more uniform state and to provide information for the next revision of ASTM D 1586.
