This test method is used to evaluate consistency and approximate unconfined compressive strength of soils by means of using a pocket penetrometer.
penetrometer, compressive strength, consistency,
Currently there is no standard on how to use a pocket pentrometer or evaluation of the data. This standard will be used by field and laboratory personnel to describe the soil characteristics without intense effort and time.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
