The CPT (cone penetrometer test/static cone penetrometer) and SDMT (Seismic Flat Dilatometer) operations are aimed at supplementing the geotechnical surveying works and rendering design more efficient with the new information that no other available test can show.
This shall be used for both foundation calculation, as well as to highlight soil improvement solutions to be applied (piles, sizes – diameters, depths etc.).
Thus, important savings of material can be achieved for the projects which employ this technology, against the classical one.
For this reason, these operations are more and more used by designers, as the end results ended up convincing increasingly more customers of the need to invest in such tests.
The Willemen Group owns an important number of such equipment in different European countries, and in Romania, Willemen Carpati works for different types of construction sites.
