“Hagstrom offers a complete in-situ testing service with Cone Penetration Testing, delivered as stand-alone or in combination with drilling services”
Cone Penetration Testing was primarily the expertise of the Dutch, but no longer. Hagstrom provides the complete package including the CPT equipment, tools and a digital CPT data acquisition/measuring system for onshore and near shore in-situ soil investigation. Cone penetration testing is a widely used and an accepted testing method to determine the strength and resilience of the site by providing geotechnical engineering properties of soils and/or delineating the structure or stratigraphy of soil. By completing CPT test before and after ground improvement works, cone penetration test results can be used to determine how much strength a soil has gained after improvement works. Groundwater levels can be monitored with a piezometer which is quickly installed after completion of a CPT. Hagstrom has a fleet of versatile high-performance CPT units and has a track record of almost 23 years.
“The tracked truck provided a great and valuable service, dealing with the unexpected ground conditions and enabling us to complete the investigation with a single piece of equipment and only one mobilisation cost”
These services are provided whilst conforming to standards set by International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGe) and Australian Standards AS1222.214.171.124.1999.
As projects often require CPTs to be completed in varied terrain, Hagstrom is able to provide you with multiple CPT rig configurations to meet our clients and site demands.
