SOIL COMPACTION TESTING
Most civil engineering projects require the use of soil as filling material. It is necessary for the soil to be compacted to a dense state so that satisfactory engineering properties can be acquired. Our soil division has equipment for conducting this test.
The compaction tests will shed light on the following mechanical properties of a soil:
Relationship between dry density and moisture content for a given degree of compactive effort achievable.
Moisture content at which maximum dry density is achievable.
Value of the maximum dry density achievable.
Proctor Test (ASTM D1557-91)
The Proctor Test, determines the maximum density of a soil needed for a specific job site. This test determines the maximum density achievable for the materials and uses this figure as a reference. Secondly, it tests the effects of moisture on soil density. The soil reference value is expressed as a percentage of density. These values are determined before any compaction ta...
