STATE OF THE ART IN TRANSPORTATION APPLICATIONS OF SUBSURFACE NUCLEAR MOISTURE AND DENSITY MEASUREMENTS

This report is concerned with the state-of-the-art in transportation agency use of subsurface nuclear moisture and density gages. The measurement range is from one foot to 150 feet below the surface. The report consists of a summary of the results of a survey on subsurface gage usage; a brief bibliography of relevant general information and of recent gage applications; and discussion, including recommended practices, based on the survey questionnaire and the literature. Results of the survey indicate little growth in the use of subsurface nuclear moisture and density gages by transportation agencies in the past decade. Survey results do indicate that nuclear gages remain useful tools for obtaining subsurface moisture and density information for a variety of research and trouble-shooting needs.
