DYNAMIC LOAD-BEARING TESTS BY FALLING WEIGHT

FALLING-WEIGHT TESTS WERE CARRIED OUT ON ROCK FILL IN SWEDEN USING A 500 KG WEIGHT WITH A FLAT 60-CM.-DIAMETER BASE SURFACE. FALL-HEIGHT WAS USUALLY 20 CM. THE RESULTS SHOWED THAT THE RECORDING OF RETARDATION AND OF THE DURATION OF THE SHOCK WAVE CAN INDICATE WHETHER EARTH OR ROCK FILL IS WELL COMPACTED. /RRL/
