Abstract

A study of penetrability of alluvial sediment, which compares strike counts of a drop-hammer on rebar to a specific depth within disturbed and undisturbed sediment. Results indicate a linear decrease in penetrability over time, a relationship between penetrability and moisture content, and provide implications of caliche deposition.
