  • The DCP finds its application in Geo-technical Investigations to obtain information on the physical properties of soil and rock around a site. 
  • The Test is used to Measure the Resistivity of Soils and can also be used for Backfill Materials required for underground  transmission lines, such as oil and gas pipelines.
