COMPACTION CONTROL OF CEMENT TREATED BASE

This research study was initiated to re-evaluate compaction control procedures for cement treated base and to investigate new and revised methods. Laboratory and field investigation substantiated that the existing laboratory compaction procedures were causing unrealistically high maximum density determinations for some aggregates. Revisions to the test procedure resulted in a decrease in the maximum density of most problem materials without significantly changing the maximum densities of materials which were found to be relatively easy to compact on the street.
