Features

  • Bulk soil / pore water electrical resistivity measurements with all CPTu / SCPTu advantages
  • Dipole or ring electrode configurations
  • Polynomial calibration over a wide range of resistivities (salt water - dry soil)
  • Soil resistivity is a function of soil type, void ratio, saturation, and pore water chemistry

Specifications

  • Resistivity module has 15 cm2 cross-sectional area
  • Rapidly connects to all ConeTec 15 cm2 cones
  • Resistivity measurement located 0.80 m behind CPTu tip
  • Can be deployed with or without the CPTu / SCPTu probe attached

ADvantages

  • Determine soil / water resistivity while collecting all other CPTu / SCPTu parameters
  • Rapid and economical
  • Minimally invasive with no soil cuttings
  • Continuous profile of resistivity

Applications

  • Corrosion protection design
  • Salt water infiltration
  • Contaminant detection
  • Degree of saturation evaluation
