COMPACTION CHARACTERISTICS OF SOME BASE AND SUBBASE MATERIALS

LABORATORY COMPACTION TESTS USING A VIBRATING TABLE AND FIELD COMPACTION EXPERIMENTS FURNISHED DATA FOR A STUDY OF THE COMPACTION CHARACTERISTICS OF BASE AND SUBBASE MATERIALS. UNIT WEIGHTS WERE COMPARED TO THOSE PRODUCED BY STANDARD METHODS. RESULTS INDICATE THAT LABORATORY VIBRATION PRODUCES DENSITIES COMPARABLE TO MAXIMUM FIELD DENSITIES, THAT USUAL METHODS OF CORRECTING DENSITY FOR THE PRESENCE OF OVERSIZE PARTICLES ARE OF LIMITED APPLICABILITY, AND THAT DENSITY SPECIFICATIONS SHOULD BE BASED ON THE REQUIREMENT THAT ACTUAL TESTS PERFORMED WITH APPARATUS YIELD RESULTS EQUIVALENT TO THOSE OBTAINED IN THE FIELD. /AUTHOR/
