what is dynamic probing?

Dynamic probing is a common ground investigation process, which offers efficient and cost-effective testing results. As a drilling solution, dynamic probing can reveal the depth to rockhead, suitable ground conditions and the presence of any cavities and serves as an effective alternative to Standard Penetration Testing (SPT) in certain situations.

The process involves vertically directing a steel cone downwards through the substrate using the Nordmeyer LMSR Dynamic Probing Rig or the Archway Dart, and recording the number of blows taken for each 10cm of depth drilled. This method of investigation provides highly reliable and accurate sampling results.
