THE STATISTICAL APPROACH TO QUALITY CONTROL IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION, PHASE I, MEASURING THE VARIABILITY, PART A- COMPACTED EMBANKMENTS

THE WORK REPORTS ON MEASUREMENTS OF VARIABILITY OF PERCENT COMPACTION AND MOISTURE CONTENT OF ACCEPTED EMBANKMENTS ON THREE HIGHWAY GRADING PROJECTS, EACH LOCATED IN A MAJOR GEOLOGICAL AREA OF THE STATE. IN-PLACE RANDOM DENSITY COMPARISONS WERE MADE OF THE WATER BALLOON METHOD, WITH NUCLEAR MOISTURE DENSITY GAGE IN DIRECT TRANSMISSION WITH 6 INCH PROBE PENETRATION AND WITH BACKSCATTER POSITION READINGS OF FLUSH DENSITY, FLUSH MOISTURE CONTENT, TWO-INCH AIR GAP DENSITY AND STANDARD COUNTS FOR MOISTURE AND DENSITY. /BPR/
