AN EVALUATION OF THE ROAD LOGGER

THE FEASIBILITY OF USING THE ROAD LOGGER IS BEING DETERMINED FOR ROADWAY DENSITIES AND MOISTURE IN LIEU OF THE SAND CONE METHOD NOW IN USE. IT WAS FOUND THAT THE ROAD LOGGER GAVE MUCH MORE INFORMATION IN LESS TIME THAN THE SAND CONE METHOD AND THE RESULTS COMPARED FAVORABLY. HOWEVER, THE COST OF OPERATING AND MAINTAINING THE ROAD LOGGER IS HIGH IN COMPARISON TO THE SAND CONE METHOD. ALSO, SOME TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES WERE ENCOUNTERED IN OPERATING THE ROAD LOGGER. /BPR/
