User manual UK DCP 2.2. Measurement of road pavement strength by Dynamic Cone Penetrometer.

Abstract

When required to assess the strength of a pavement or to design improvement works, the pavement engineer needs to know as much as possible about the thicknesses of the existing pavement layers and their condition. The Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) is an efficient way of testing pavement at more frequent intervals than can be performed using test pits.

This manual guides users of this UK DCP software. It has 9 chapters, each

describing one stage or function of its installation and operation.
