Evaluation of Soil Compaction Measuring Devices

measuring devices which monitor the change of soil response due to the application of impact or vibrating force on the soil. All the devices, however, provided a measure of soil densification and they could be used satisfactorily to replace the NDG when they are properly correlated to soil relative compaction.

Diagnosing Soil Compaction Using a Penetrometer (Soil

Fracturing or cutting subsurface compacted soil has, in some cases, resulted in remarkable yield increases. Many Pennsylvania producers suspect they have a subsurface compaction problem, but have no handle on how to measure it. A diagnostic tool to measure the extent and depth of subsurface compaction is a penetrometer, or soil compaction tester.

Field Evaluation of Compaction Monitoring Technology

Field Evaluation of Compaction Moni­ Soil compaction was then displayed in real time on a ruggidized computer monitor placed in the cab of the roller. In essence, this research used the compaction machine as a measuring device to help control the compaction process

Evaluation of Non-Nuclear Methods for Compaction Control

required for compaction control. Of the devices tested, two devices based on the measurement of electrical soil properties showed the most promise. However, improvements are required before these devices can be used in practice. 17. Key Words Compaction, Density, Water Content, Nuclear Gauge 18. Distribution Statement No restrictions.

Laboratory Evaluation of the Briaud Compaction Device

The Briaud compaction device (BCD) is a simple, small-strain, nondestructive testing apparatus that can be used to evaluate the modulus of compacted soils. The use of the BCD as a field testing device for compacted soil quality control may be more beneficial than the current practice of measuring in

EVALUATION OF A MECHANICAL STIFFNESS GAUGE FOR

describes the evaluation of one such commercially available device known as the GeoGauge. The GeoGauge measures soil stiffness, arguably, a much more viable engineering parameter than the moisture-density relations currently used. The GeoGauge was found to measure soil

Evaluation of non-nuclear methods for compaction control

Additionally, many of the devices do not provide a measure of water content, and thus would require another device to measure water content when water content is required for compaction control. Of the devices tested, two devices based on the measurement of electrical soil

DEVELOPMENT AND VALIDATION OF SOIL MEASUREMENT DEVICES

Goals / Objectives To develop and evaluate soil pressure measurement devices and to determine maximum soil pressures generated by land mine excavation vehicles which will not trigger land mines. Project Methods A series of soil bin experiments will be conducted to evaluate and determine the effects of vehicle and soil parameters on soil

Soil Density Testing: 3 Test Methods You Can Count On

A soil compaction test uses one of several methods to measure the dry density and moisture content of the soil in place. The three most common are discussed here. Results from these field tests are compared to the Proctor test results of the same soil established in the laboratory and the ratio is expressed as the percent compaction.
