Tech/Engineering - Geology / geotechnical surveys
|Spanish term or phrase: "punta perdida" (in this context)|
|"La varilla utilizada es de 1000 mm, 32 mm de diámetro y punta perdida de 20 cm2". Describing the type of rod used in a DPSH (dynamic probing super-heavy) test to determine the properties of the soil. From what I have seen, "punta" in this case translates as "cone" but I can only find "nominal cone area" with similar dimensions. Any suggestions?|

|Thanks for this - very useful. Also "sacrificial cone" (see discussion) but I opted for this one.|
