The original Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) was developed in 1959 by the late Professor George F. Sowers. The DCP uses a 15 lb (6.8 kg) steel mass falling 20 in (50.8 cm) that strikes the anvil to cause penetration of a 1.5 in (3.8 cm) diameter cone (45° vertex angle) that has been seated in the bottom of a hand augered hole.
