Compaction specs for crushed Stone Under

2002-8-29  We use crushed stone or gravel as mud-mats in footings in clayey soils similar to your case. We normally recommend a No. 57 gradation crushed stone or gravel, and a thickness of 8 to 10 inches. If thicker layers are used, we recommend that each 12-inch thickness of stone backfill be densified by making 3 or 4 passes of a walk-behind vibratory sled or plate type compactor over the stone surface.

DEGRADATION CONTROL OF CRUSHED STONE BASE

Laboratory compaction of crushed stone base course mixes often results in a degradation of the larger particle sizes and a consequent change in sample gradation. The purpose of this study was to determine a laboratory compaction procedure producing uniform densification at optimum moisture content,

A new practical method for determining the LA

2017-10-1  The soil compaction procedure was originally developed by Ralph Roscoe Proctor from 1930-33 to determine the maximum dry unit weight of soil (Proctor, 1948, Budhu, 2010). During the 1930s, he implemented mechanical strength tests during the construction of an earth dam using methods similar to what later became ASTM D1558-10 (Proctor, 1945).
