EXAMPLE OF AN ENERGY CALIBRATION REPORT ON A PENETRATION TEST (ASTM STANDARD D 1586-67) DRILL RIG

This note provides an example of an energy calibration report on standard penetration test equipment. This calibration was designed to determine a standard hammer drop height that would produce 2100 in. lb (237 N m) of compression wave energy entering the drill rods as a result of the average hammer blow when using drop procedures as ordinarily used for the rig under calibration. /Author/
