Representating test strech


Test pit Location

FIELD DENSITY
Wt. of core + soil sample(W1)

(gm)

Wt. of core ( W2)

(gm)

Wt. of soil sample in core W3=W1-W2

(gm)

wet density of material in the core Yb=(W3/V)

(gm/cc)

MOISTURE CONTENT
Moisture content by Rapid Moisture meter(%)

RESULTS
Field dry density Yd=100x {Yb/(100+w)}

(gm/cc)

Percentage of compaction obtained=(100xYd/Ymdd)

% compaction required as per specification
