    Abstract

    The purpose of this recommended practice is to outline major principles for planning, organizing, and conducting exploration, sampling, and testing and engineering work in connection with sub-surface soil investigations for engineering purposes. This recommended practice deals primarily with physical sampling and testing of the subsoil; however, geophysical, electrical, sonic or other such interpretive methods of exploration are briefly mentioned, as pertinent.
