Geotechnical Software Resources on the Net
Before you go any further, check out the software offerred to the initial (1995, 96) subscribers to the Electronic Journal of Geotechnical Engineering. These are very easy to use, and inexpensive programs (all for Windows)
You can download the PClass-CPT© program. The program reads and displays the results of Cone Penetration Tests (CPT). The results are used in estimating soil types and properties at each depth increment, and classify the soil accordingly
Contact Tumay for info.
