The drive-cylinder method for determining in-place density involves obtaining a relatively undisturbed soil sample by driving a thin-walled cylinder into the soil with a special driving head. Two procedures are described for performing this test, one for testing at the surface or at very shallow depths, usually less than 3 ft (1 m), and one for testing at greater depths.
