In 2016 in Russia, a new Standard STO 36554501–049–2016 “CPT Application for Soil Foundation Control on Permafrost” was developed and enacted. The standard determines the basic requirements for CPT (Cone Penetration Testing) application for geotechnical control and investigation of the foundations located on permafrost soils. The standard applies to soils which are dispersive, natural and man-made, frozen/freezing and thawed/thawing. The composition and condition of these soils should allow continuous penetration of a penetrometer used for CPT. Many chapters of the standard are relevant and applicable for performing geotechnical site investigation for foundation design purposes. Particular attention is paid to the CPT probe applications with additional sensors.
