Cone Penetration Test (CPT) is a geotechnical investigation method used to determine the soil parameters and characteristics at a specific site. The results of CPT tests can be used in geotechnical design to evaluate the soil behavior and to determine the design parameters for foundation and other geotechnical structures. Here is a step by step guide on how to use CPT results in geotechnical designs:
Overall, agricultural science and geotechnical research are closely related fields that have a number of significant overlaps in terms of their focus on soil science, land use and management, environmental impacts, and water management.
