The density for stone base compaction

Feb 17, 2011 For the first time in my life I am measuring densities of compacted type 1 subbase, we are using type 1 as an import backfill material on the Shetlands gas plant. It’s 4.5kg (method 3.5 BS 1377)dry density compaction is 2.38T/M3, it is a metamorphic rock whose relative density will be between 2.8/2.9T/M3 and we are achieving densities of 2.26

    compaction takes place to develop the compaction specifications. Modified Proctor values are higher because they take into account higher densities needed for certain types of construction projects. Test methods are similar for both tests. [See Figure 10] Field tests It is important to know and control the soil density during compaction

    May 25, 2020 For example, specifications often require compaction to be 95 percent of Standard Proctor. This means the on-site soil density must be equal to 95% of the maximum achievable compaction. Compaction is achieved by applying three basic

    Density is also called as unit weight of substance. It is represented by symbol called row ( p). Density represents the degree of compactness of material. If the material is of more density, it is more compacted material. Density is defined as the ratio of mass to volume. p = m/v Units = kg/m 3 or lb/ft 3 Conversion: 1 kg/m 3 = 0.624 lb/ft 3

    Jul 07, 2021 Having a good mix of large and fine particles is recommended for successful compaction. Place the sub base in 4” to 8” lifts if possible, but be aware the compaction force of the machine may require you to adjust this. As a good rule of thumb, adjust your lift height in the ratio of 1” of material for every 1000lbs of compaction force
