8 SOIL COMPACTION HANDBOOK Soil density tests To determine if proper soil compaction is achieved for any specific construc-tion application, several methods were developed.

The most prominent by far is soil density. Why test Soil testing accomplishes the following: Measures density of soil for comparing the degree of compaction vs specsFile Size: 2MB. Impact Value, as determined using the standard kg (10 lbm) hammer, has direct application to design and construction of pavements and a general application to earthworks compaction control and evaluation of strength characteristics of a wide range of materials, such as soils, soil aggregates, stabilized soil and recreational turf.

Impact Value is one of the properties used to evaluate. COMPACTION CONTROL The specifications require that each lift of the embankment be compacted to the satisfaction of the Engineer. If the Engineer elects to test, satisfactory compaction is defined as 90% (95% in the – Density –. AS Determination of the dry density/moisture content relation of a soil using standard compactive effort.

AS Compaction control test - Dry density ratio, moisture variation and moisture ratio. AS Compaction Control Test (Rapid Method).

AS Explosives, Storage, transport and use. Article Applicable Standards The latest revision of the following standards of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) are hereby made a part of these specifications: ASTM C Test for Unit Weight of Aggregate.

Constructing and Controlling Compaction of Earth Fills (ASTM Special Technical Publication, ) Donald W. Shanklin, Keith R. Rademacher, and James R. Talbot, editors This unique volume explores the use of various standardized methods for specifying and controlling the compaction of soils for engineered constructed earth fills.

The USSD Committee on Materials for Embankment Dams has prepared this White Paper on Materials for Embankment Dams. The paper provides an outline of important points that need to be recognized and understood when selecting material for use in embankment dams.

It covers soil materials; rockfill materials; granular filters and drains. The following list of ASTM standards (American Society of Testing and Materials) applicable to the construction of earthen dams serves as example.

ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), is a globally recognized leader in the development and delivery of international voluntary consensus standards. Today, s ASTM standards are used around the world to improve product quality, enhance safety, facilitate market access and trade.

Earthfill: a) Make certain that all organic matter is removed from areas receiving fill prior to placement of fill in accordance with NRCS Construction Specifications. b) Inspect and document the adequacy of eart h fill materials and compaction. Document compaction method, lift thicknes s, equipment type, number of passes, and type of soil.

Purpose. This manual presents fundamental principles underlying the design and construction of earth and rock-fill dams. The general principles presented herein are also applicable to the design and construction of earth levees.

by testing, design, and proper construction techniques--produces permanent structural stabilization of soils. Before beginning any construction project, project plans and specifications must be developed. For highway pavements, the design must accommodate expected traffic volumes along with environmental, site, and material conditions.

In dams, embankment refers to successive layers of the earth such as soil, sand, clay, or rock, using the most impervious materials to form a core and placing more permeable substances on the upstream and downstream sides. In this article, we discuss the characteristics, properties, types, and tests on embankment materials.

Quality control and quality assurance of field compaction relies mainly on measuring the dry density and gravimetric water content of the compacted soil. The well accepted procedure utilizes the oven-dry method [ ASTM D, ] for water content measurements and the sand-cone method [ ASTM D, ] for total density by: 4.Gibler, P., Bruce, D.
