MODERN CONCEPTS FOR GRADATION CONTROL. PHASE IV. GRANULAR BASE COURSES
During 1970, 1971 and 1972 gradation data were obtained on granular base courses that were being constructed on several Minnesota trunk highways. Data were collected and analyzed from randomly selected locations on ten projects. A statistical analysis was also performed on job control data for the ten projects and also on results from numerous other granular base projects. Variation was determined from these data by computing the mean and standard deviation to reveal existing variability in acceptable construction of granular base aggregates. The results were used to evaluate present specifications and to develop a new acceptance sampling plan based on statistical concepts that will define the degree of acceptable variation upon which decisions can be made with an established degree of confidence. Proposed statistical specifications are presented.
