Import Penetrometer Data into the Borehole Manager

Borehole Manager | File | Import | Spectrum SC900 CPT

This RockWorks Borehole Manager program is used to read a data file output from a Spectrum Technologies Field Scout SC-900 Soil Compaction Meter and import the measurements into the Borehole Manager’s P-Data table. This data may then be modeled in three-dimensions via the P-Data | Solid program in order to gain an understanding of soil compaction.

Step-by-Step Summary

  1. Open the project folder (if necessary) in which the "boreholes" or measurement sites are to be created.
  2. Access the Borehole Manager program tab.
  3. Select the File | Import | Spectrum SC900 CPT menu option.
  4. Enter the requested menu options, described above.
  5. Click the Process button to continue.

A separate borehole record will be created for each sample number. If there are longitude and latitude coordinates listed in the Scout file, they will be listed in those fields in the Location table's Other Coordinate Projections tab. For each measurement location, the depths and soil compactions will be listed in the P-Data tab; RockWorks will convert the file depths to your project depth units.

  1. Post-import:
  2. Once these have been entered, you can use the P-Data menu tools to model and display the compaction data as profiles, fences, and solids. You can also visualize the source data as curves on 2D and 3D slogs using the Striplogs menu tools.
