Determination of Field Unit Weight of Compaction by Sand Cone Method.
Objective of this experiment is to determine Field Unit Weight of Compaction by Sand Cone Method.
Description of Soil Samples:
The soil use in the lab experiment was Ottawa sand.
Description of Test Methodology:
At first dry unit weight of 20-30 Ottawa sand was determined by using Proctor compaction mold and a spoon filling it with the sand. Sand was then poured into mold without any vibration or other means of compaction. When the mold is full, the top of mold was struck off with steel straight edge. The weight of sand (W1) was determined. In the next step, the cone was calibrated Continue reading...
