Abstract/Contents:"Soil penetration resistance is an important mechanical property that can be used as an indicator of soil compaction and is important in determining the least limiting water range. We present the use of a simple and relatively inexpensive instrument, the dynamic penetrometer, to measure soil mechanical resistance in the field. The dynamic penetrometer uses a calculated amount of kinetic energy to move a specialized cone a certain distance through the soil, which is then converted to penetration resistance using a simple formula. This paper shows the theory, calculation and practical application for quantifying soil penetration resistance with depth. Application in two adjacent fields in Narrabri, NSW, showed its effectiveness in comparing the soil strength in soils under differing management regimes."
