American Engineering Testing has had a seismic piezocone rig since 2003. Seismic piezocone testing (PCPT) is an in-situ test that involves pushing an instrumented cylindrical cone into the ground with a static pressure. During penetration, continuous measurements of tip resistance, sleeve friction, and pore water pressure are made. Our equipment consists of 15cm2 electronic cones.
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) offers a non-destructive means of material analysis without coring or probing through solid surfaces. GPR is a pulse-echo method for measuring depths where material types change. GPR works much like ultrasound imaging by emitting high frequency electromagnetic waves through materials under investigation using radio waves rather then sound waves.
