This report describes the design, testing and evaluation of a compaction meter that can provide information to the roller operator on the compaction result. Comparisons were made with density tests, static plate loading tests, dynamic plate loading tests and determination of surface settlement. The compaction meter has proved to be especially suitable on layers of rock fill, crushed rock and gravel. /TRRL/
