|ICS Code (Earthworks. Excavations. Foundation construction. Underground works):||93.020|
This document specifies the equipment requirements, execution of and reporting on self-boring pressuremeter (SBP) tests.
NOTE This document fulfils the requirements for self-boring pressuremeter test as part of the geotechnical investigation services according to EN 1997-1 and EN 1997-2.
Tests with the self-boring pressuremeter cover the measurement in situ of the deformation of soils and weak rocks by the expansion and contraction of a cylindrical flexible membrane under pressure.
