Cone penetration test (CPT) is a field soil investigation technique, which formerly called Barentsen-apparatus, was developed initially in 1932.
Several methods such as Vane Shear Test (VST), Cone Penetration Test (CPT) and T-Bar method are being used for the downhole testing.
Cone Penetration Test. Silica fume/SBS composite-modified asphalt mortar is a heterogeneous material, and the discreteness of data would be very large if the conventional penetration test is used to evaluate its denseness [15-17].
The cone penetration test and piezocone penetration test (CPT/CPTU) while drilling is a mature and timesaving in situ test method that can be used to continuously measure the soil mechanical properties without disturbing the soil's in situ stress [6].
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].
