Perform the cone penetration test (CPT/SPT) in soil or overburden as per Engineer requirement.
The most widely used geotechnical investigation methods are the light cable percussion boring test, static and dynamic penetration tests are the cone penetration test (CPT) and the standard penetration test (SPT) [14,16,8,17,24,26].

Shibata and Teparaksa [4] also proposed a liquefaction potential evaluation based on cone penetration test data.
The remaining papers are presented in sections covering computed tomography and digital imaging for the internal characterization of geomaterials, wave propagation techniques for the evaluation of properties and processes, seismic geophysical techniques for construction characterization and modeling, cone penetration test methods, and other in situ methods and numerical modeling.
Using the cone penetration test (CPT) data and the earthquake loading information, which includes the magnitude and peak ground acceleration, collected from the web-based database provided by USGS National Seismic Hazard Mapping Project, the liquefaction potential and the probability of liquefaction-induced ground failure of each site in the Charleston quadrangle can be calculated.
The cone penetration test (CPT) is a type of soil tests widely used to predict the axial ultimate capacity of pile foundations [2,3].
