SOME COMMENTS ON EARTH COMPACTION

COMPACTION TERMINOLOGY IS EXAMINED AND REVISIONS PROPOSED. EXAMPLES OF HOW TO MAKE A CHOICE BETWEEN THE DRY AND THE WET SIDE OF THE OPTIMUM MOISTURE CONTENT ARE GIVEN. THE COMMONLY USED CONCEPT OF THE MOISTURE CONTENT BY DRY WEIGHT IS DISCUSSED WITH THE CONCLUSION THAT THE USE OF THIS CONCEPT DOES NOT ALWAYS INDICATE THE MOISTURE DISTRIBUTION IN A SUBGRADE. A BRITISH PAPER ON EXPERIMENTAL COMPACTION IS ANALYZED AND THE RESULTS OF THE ANALYSIS ARE ILLUSTRATED GRAPHICALLY. /AUTHOR/
