Prediction of hardpan zones in the soil profile using field scout SC 900 cone penetrometerAuthor(s):
Many numerical techniques and methods are being used in engineering applications, and digital computers are very useful to assist manufacturing and design engineers. There is growing recognition of the importance of soil compaction, but the cost of the tool, the frequency of measurement, and the interpretation of the data limit its measurements in agriculture. The hand-held push-type cone penetrometers are commonly used in tillage management and off-road traffic research as an indicator of soil hardness, density, and strength characteristics related to the engineering properties of the agricultural soil. A study was carried out to predict hardpan in the soil profile with the help of Field Scout SC 900 Cone Penetrometer that follows American Society of Agricultural Engineers standards. The device consists of a power transducer to measure the forces of penetration, ultrasonic depth for measuring sensors and a data recording system to amplify, digitize and collect data.Pages: 478-483 | Views: 112 | Downloads: 9Download Full Article: Click Here
