THE DOUBLE DYNAMIC CONE PENETROMETER (DCP) TEST WITH AN EXTENDED PENETRATING ROD

The extensive work with the Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) test and experience gained in Israel have led to two major modifications in the testing apparaturs and in the testing procedure as well. This paper addresses those modifications. The first modification is the extension of the standard penetrating rod's length to a total of about 2.0 meters by screwing an additional 1.0 meter rod into the original one, after completing its penetration to the pavement or subgrade. The second modification is termed "the double DCP test". This procedure combines a conventional DCP testing with an additional one carried out on the exposed subgrade after the spiral drilling through all the pavement layers.
