Typical uses include disturbed and undisturbed soil sampling, in situ testing and foundation and landslide investigations. Rotary Drilling - Power rotation of drilling bit as circulating fluid removes cuttings from hole. Changes are indicated by rate of progress, action of drilling tools and examination of cuttings in drilling fluid.

Soil Sampling. Shallow soil sampling may be acquired to obtain and measure geotechnical properties below the seabed. A common method is to use gravity-based coring devices that can produce a continuous core of the upper 0–6 m (0–20 ft) below the seabed. The unit is simple and reliable and can operate well in water depths > m ( ft).

If the material is hard, the spring compresses a greater amount and the outer barrel passes the tube so that the bit leads the cutting edge of the tube (Figure c).
