DETERMINATION OF COMPACTION PROPERTIES AND BEARING CAPACITY CHARACTERISTICS OF VARIOUS SOILS

In the financial year under review, the Road Foundation Department has made studies of the American report on the results of the large-scale road tests at Ottawa, Illinois, U.S.A., known under the name of the AASHO Road Test. In conjunction with these studies, the Department has carried out a relatively detailed investigation of a sample which had been taken from the homogenised layer in the subgrade during the AASHO Road Test. The Department made laboratory tests with the object of determining the road engineering properties of this material, primarily its compaction properties and bearing capacity characteristics. These tests will be described and their results will be presented in a separate report. The above-mentioned investigation formed part of a series of systematic laboratory investigations dealing with the bearing properties of various road construction materials. This series had been started earlier, and was continued in 1963-1964. /Author/
