CORRELATION AND CONFERENCE OF PORTABLE NUCLEAR DENSITY AND MOISTURE SYSTEMS.

THIS REPORT SUMMARIZES THE CORRELATION AND CONFERENCE HELD IN CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA, DURING THE WEEK OF JULY 12, 1965. THE CORRELATION AND CONFERENCE HAD TWO PHASES' /1/ THE DETERMINATION OF THE CALIBRATION CURVES FOR EACH DEVICE ON PREPARED STANDARDS, /2/ FIELD TESTING ON A TEST ROAD ESPECIALLY PREPARED FOR THAT PURPOSE. ITS PURPOSES WERE TO' /1/ COMPARE RESULTS OBTAINED BY THE VARIOUS PORTABLE NUCLEAR SYSTEMS USED TO MEASURE DENSITIES AND MOISTURE CONTENTS OF SOILS AND AGGREGATES, /2/ ATTEMPT TO RECONCILE ANY DIFFERENCES THAT MIGHT BE FOUND AMONG THE VARIOUS SYSTEMS, AND /3/ GIVE THOSE INTERESTED IN CONDUCTING RESEARCH WITH NUCLEAR DENSITY AND MOISTURE APPARATUS THE OPPORTUNITY OF CONDUCTING AUXILIARY EXPERIMENTS UNDER CONTROLLED FIELD CONDITIONS. THE STUDY WAS GENERALLY LIMITED TO PORTABLE SURFACE GAGES THAT COULD TEST IN EITHER BACKSCATTER, DIRECT TRANSMISSION, OR BOTH. HOWEVER, ON REQUEST FROM A COMPANY THAT MANUFACTURES A VEHICULAR MOUNTED NUCLEAR SYSTEM, THIS EQUIPMENT WAS ALSO INCLUDED. /AUTHOR/
