Site investigations with the small devices described are employed for the first survey and for general review of sites as well as for enlarging on other boring techniques and for surveillance of the excavation pit floor and similar tasks. The technique involved supplies only a small number of samples, from which, in suitable subsoil conditions, the pattern of strata can be determined, but this is not generally satisfactory for laboratory tests. In the first instance the sequence of strata must be determined and the resistance to penetration is not generally of great use in providing evidence of properties. The static and dynamic penetration rods are devices for determining penetration resistance not covered in this Austrian standard. These are described in DIN 4094, part 1 and part 2. The aim of this particular Austrian standard is the standardization of tongued and grooved penetration rods, extension rods and intermediate pieces. /TRRL/
