What IsSPT Test?
The Standard Penetration Test (SPT Test) is one type of in-situ soil test and It is conducted to determine the geotechnical engineering properties of subsurface soils, especially for cohesionless soil.
SPT Test is most widely used to check various parameters and properties of soil on the construction site. For any building foundation, design and construction soil testing are essential.
The test is extremely useful for determining the bearing capacity, density, and angle of shearing resistance of any soil. It can be used to determine the properties of cohesive and cohesionless soil. The Standard Penetration Test ASTM e1105
