Sonic drilling is a technique that significantly reduces friction on the drill string and drill bit by using energy resonance to affect the soil structure where it contacts the drill string. This combination makes penetrating for a large range of soils much easier. Sonic drilling is most often used when the drilling is difficult and the integrity of the core sample is extremely important.
Soil compaction is becoming a major issue worldwide. Not only in the Netherlands but globally the soil is deteriorating very badly. Soil compaction is a form of soil degradation, in which the soil structure is lost because the soil is compressed. This global problem is still underestimated and causes problems for agriculture, nature, and climate. Furthermore, soil compaction leads to loss of yield, loss of quality, and reduced water storage.
Toppling cranes, lorries getting stuck causing construction works to come to a standstill, personnel slipping or sinking and then staying home as a result of their injuries; these are some of the dangerous situations that occur when the ground of a construction site has insufficient load-bearing capacity. This prompted the ‘Federation of Piling Specialists’ (FPS) to develop the Working Platform Certificate (WPC) a number of years ago.
While in certain parts of the world Standard Penetration Testing (SPT) is the most widely used geotechnical soil investigation method, it has drawbacks. Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) is also a well-proven soil investigation method and is in many instances a more appropriate method than SPT.
