There are many commonly used field testing methods for subsurface investigation in soft clay: Light Dynamic Penetrometer (JKR or Mackintosh Probe). Development of Mackintosh Probe Extractor. Dynamic probing is a continuous soil investigation technique, which is one of the simplest soil penetration test. It basically consist of repeatedly driving a metal tipped probe into the ground using a drop weight of fixed mass and travel. One of the most common types of probing is Mackintosh Probe. The tool provides a very economical method of determining the thickness of soft deposits such.

PRELIMINARY LIST OF PAPERS
The test is similar to the Dutch Deep sounding or piezocone test with the addition of a cone penetration element in the probe to measure water pressure.
The test mackintosh probe test procedure also known as pore pressure sounding or CPTU. This is a light dynamic test and the cone is driven directly into the soil by driving a hammer 5 kg.
Weight dropping through a free height of mm. The probe is mackintosh probe test procedure to penetrate into medium strength soil and gravelly ground.
Finger pressure dents soil. Soil can be molded using strong finger pressure.
Easily molded by finger. Soil flows between fingers when fist is closed. Lower down water level in borehole 2. Allow the ground water rise to original level 3.
SOIL INVESTIGATION: INTRODUCTION
Collect the water samples. The most popular devices are: Vane shear test VST 2. Standard penetration test SPT 3.
Cone penetrometer test CPT 4. Pressuremeter test PMT 5. The test consists of inserting a four-bladed vane into the clay and rotating the device about a vertical axis, per ASTM D guidelines.
Limit equilibrium analysis is used to relate the measured peak mackintosh probe test procedure to the calculated value of Su. Both the peak and remolded strengths can be measured; their ratio is termed the sensitivity, S t.
A selection of vanes is available in terms of size, shape, and configuration, depending upon the consistency and strength characteristics of the soil. The Mackintosh probe test procedure is performed by driving a standard split spoon sampler into the ground by blows from a drop hammer of mass The sampler is driven mm 6 in.
The number of blows N is called the standard penetration number. The Cone Penetrometer Test CPT The cone penetration mackintosh probe test procedure is quickly becoming the most popular type of in-situ test because it is fast, economical, and provides continuous profiling of geostratigraphy and soil properties evaluation.
The measured point or tip resistance is designated qc and the measured side or sleeve resistance is fs.
