A STATISTICAL STUDY OF VARIATIONS IN MATERIALS AND COMPACTED DENSITIES BY SAND-CONE AND NUCLEAR METHODS

THE RESULTS OF SEVERAL GRADATION, CONSISTENCY, AND DENSITY-IN-PLACE TESTS, BY BOTH NUCLEAR AND SAND-CONE METHODS, ON TWO CONTROLLED AREAS AT THE CHICAGO O'HARE AIRPORT ARE DESCRIBED. DATA ON THE FILL AND BASE COURSE MATERIALS PLACED IN THE AREAS SHOWED WIDE VARIATION, INDICATING THE ADVANTAGE OF HAVING A LARGE NUMBER OF DATA FOR CONTROL AND USEFUL STATISTICAL ANALYSES. NEITHER OF THE TWO METHODS IS FOUND SUPERIOR IN ASSESSING THE QUALITY OF THE EMBANKMENT FILL. /AUTHOR/
