FIELD INVESTIGATION OF SOIL COMPACTION

A FULL SCALE FIELD RESEARCH STUDY WAS UNDERTAKEN TO INVESTIGATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS METHODS OF COMPACTING SOIL FOR HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION AND TO DETERMINE THE RESULTING SOIL PROPERTIES USING RAPID FIELD METHODS FOR MEASUREMENT OF MOISTURE, DENSITY, STRENGTH AND STIFFNESS. THE MEASUREMENTS INCLUDED MOISTURE AND DENSITY WITH A PORTABLE BACK-SCATTER NUCLEAR DEVICE, MOISTURE AND DENSITY WITH SAND CONE APPARATUS, PENETRATION RESISTANCE WITH A CONE PENETROMETER, CALIFORNIA BEARING RATIO, STIFFNESS WITH A 6- IN. BEARING PLATE AND SEISMIC VELOCITY WITH A PORTABLE SEISMOGRAPH.
