Becker Penetration Test Software – NovoBPT
The Standard Penetration Test (SPT) is the most common test for evaluation of subsurface information, both on land and offshore. However, when subsurface layers include gravels and cobbles, SPT is not longer practical. Becker Penetration Test (BPT) is performed with a hammer driving a double walled pipe into the ground. The test relates soil strength to the number of blows required to penetrate the last 300 mm of this casing. The energy output of the Becker Drill hammer varies; Therefore, the recorded number of blows must be adjusted for the energy of the hammer in order to yield a reliable assessment of soil strength.
NovoBPT software has been designed for correction and correlation of Becker Penetration Test blow counts to Standard Penetration Test blow counts (N60).
NovoBPT comes with a complete help file (accessible from inside the program), and user’s manual in PDF and eBook formats to allow you getting up-to-speed in a very short time.
