GYRATORY COMPACTION OF SOIL: REPORT 1, PIT-RUN CLAY GRAVEL, DATA REPORT

TESTS WERE PERFORMED TO DETERMINE THE EFFECT OF THE GYRATORY COMPACTOR'S THREE VARIABLES (ANGLE OF GYRATION, VERTICAL PRESSURE, AND NUMBER OF REVOLUTIONS) ON COMPACTION CHARACTERISTICS OF PIT-RUN CLAY GRAVEL. GYRATORY MOISTURE- DENSITY RELATIONS WERE DETERMINED BY MAINTAINING TWO OF THE THREE VARIABLES CONSTANT WHILE THE THIRD WAS ALLOWED TO VARY THROUGH A PREDETERMINED RANGE. THIS PROCEDURE WAS REPEATED FOR EACH VARIABLE. OTHER INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM THE TESTS INCLUDED SAMPLE REBOUND AFTER GYRATION, CALIFORNIA BEARING RATIOS INDICATING COMPARATIVE SOIL STRENGTH, STATIC-PRESSURE COMPACTION, REPRODUCIBILITY OF GYRATORY COMPACTION RESULTS, AND AMOUNT OF AGGREGATE DEGRADATION. THE DATA FROM GYRATORY COMPACTED SAMPLES DEMONSTRATED EXCELLENT REPRODUCIBILITY OF COMPACTION CHARACTERISTICS. REPRODUCIBILITY OF CBR TEST RESULTS, HOWEVER, WAS INCONCLUSIVE BECAUSE OF THE AGGREGATE EFFECT ON PISTON PENETRATION. THESE DATA ARE TO BE USED LATER IN EXPLORING THE USE OF THE GYRATORY COMPACTOR IN THE DESIGN OF PAVEMENT STRUCTURES. /AUTHOR/
