ABSTRACT CONE index, a measure of the penetration resistance of a soil, is affected by many factors including soil density, moisture content, and soil type. The effect of each of these three variables on cone index was in-vestigated and discussed. Based on experimental data, an equation for cone index as a function of moisture con-tent and density was developed for each soil type considered.
