REPORT ON THE EVALUATION OF A CORING RIG FOR THE PURPOSE OF REDUCING THE TIME INVOLVED TO DIG A UNIFORM DENSITY HOLE

A SUITABLE CORRELATION HAS BEEN MADE OF DUPLICATE DENSITY TESTS MADE BY A NUCLEAR GAGE AND A WATER-BALLOON APPARATUS IN HOLES DRILLED WITH A PORTABLE CORING RIG. THE DRILLED HOLES ARE COMPLETED IN ABOUT ONE-HALF THE TIME NEEDED WHEN USING CONVENTIONAL METHODS IN LIMEROCK BASE COURSES. THE CORING RIG METHOD IS NOW USED FOR ROUTINE CONSTRUCTION CONTROL TESTING.
