CPT Interpretation Software (NovoCPT)

NovoCPT program is designed for interpretation of cone penetration test data.

The most comprehensive CPT processing software

Import cone penetration test (CPT) data files into the program and you will be able to conduct engineering analyses for:

  • Correlating to more than 35 soil parameters
  • Soil liquefaction analysis
  • Pile bearing capacity analysis (LCPC method)
  • Pad footing bearing capacity and settlement analysis

Our state-of-the-art ‘Stratigraphy Assistant’ helps you identify soil layers based on several sensitivity criteria.
