Sample text

The test consists of the measurement of the penetration depth of a standard cone, with a mass of 80 g, forced into the soil material. By carrying out measurements at different moisture contents, a diagram similar to the number of blows versus moisture content is obtained. The liquid limit is determined as the moisture content at which the penetration depth is equal to 20 mm. Soils 13 The results obtained using this apparatus might be slightly different from those determined using the Casagrande device.

The short description of all pavement material testing procedures, required by European and American standards, as well as pavement design and maintenance procedures covered, does not, by any means, substitute or replace the standards and procedures developed by the xxxv xxxvi Preface various organisations and agencies. The reader is advised to always consult the standards or manuals developed when engaged in testing, design, construction or maintenance works. It is hoped that this textbook will not only contribute to the understanding of the wide and challenging subject of pavement engineering but also enable a more effective and economical design, construction and maintenance of pavements by employing updated standards, practices and techniques.

The determination of the optimum water content is carried out in the laboratory using various methods, the most common of which is the proctor method (compaction). 6 Proctor compaction test (modified) by American standards The proctor compaction test defines the relationship between soil density and moisture content with the aim of determining the maximum density at a certain moisture content, known as the optimum moisture content. According to ASTM D 1557 (2012) or AASHTO T 180 (2010), a sufficient mass of soil material is mixed well with water, is transferred to a mould and is compacted by a dropping rammer.
