This paper deals with kneading compaction and its significance in relation to the strength of compacted soil specimens and the reproduction of more realistic test specimens in the laboratory. It describes the main features of various kneading compaction mechanies and presents results of some tests on Perth soils. The method is discussed in relation to the physical characteristics of compacted specimens and soil compaction theories. The main conclusions are that kneading compactors are satisfactory devices for preparing test specimens, and that research has shown the usefulness of kneading compaction as a basis for comparing compaction methods and in the development of an effective stress soil compaction theory. /Author/
