HIGHER DENSITIES BY VIBRATION - REPORT ON COMPARATIVE COMPACTION OF COATED BASE

RESULTS ARE PRESENTED OF VIBRATORY COMPACTION TESTS ON A 1 1/2 IN. DENSE BITUMINOUS MACADAM ROADBASE UNDERLAID BY A LAYER OF COMPACTED LIMESTONE OF IRREGULAR DEPTH AND UNKNOWN DENSITY. RESULTS SUPPORT THE VIEW THAT A VIBRATORY COMPACTOR ACHIEVES HIGHER DENSITIES AND COMPACTS DEEPER LAYERS THAN A CONVENTIONAL DEADWEIGHT MACHINE; FEWER PASSES ARE REQUIRED. /TRRL/
