1
Compaction Related
Test : In-situ density sand replacement   (small cone), dia, 100mm
Method : - BS1377; Part 9, 1990, 2.1
 

This is the most widely used method for determining the in-situ density of earthworks layers by direct measurements of mass and volume. The method is applicable for natural compacted fine to medium grained soil layers up to 150mm thick.
As a compaction control, the test is normally required with laboratory compaction test (2.5 kg. or 4.5 kg ram mer) to determine the degree of site compaction relative to laboratory maximum dry density and optimum moisture content. The Laboratory test that is charged separately and can be carried out at the Laboratory's permanent facility (as above address) is as follows:
BS1377: Part 4, 1990, 3.3 (2.5k ram mer) or/and
BS1377: Part 4, 1990, 3.3 (4.5k ram mer)

   
Test : Dry density/Moisture   relationship ASTM
Method : - BS1377: Part 9,1990,2.2
 

This is the most widely used method for determining density of backfill layers (e.g. granular sub base crusher run) by direct measurements of mass and volume. The method is applicable for natural or compacted fine to coarse-grained soil layers exceeding 150mm, but not exceeding 250mm in thickness.

As a compaction control, the test is normally required with laboratory compaction test (2.5kg or 4.5kg ram mer)to determine the degree of site compaction relative to laboratory maximum dry density and optimum moisture content. The laboratory test that is charge separately and can be carried out at the laboratory's permanent facility (as above address) is as follows:

BS1377: Part 4, 1990, 3.4 (2.5k ram mer) or/and
BS1377: Part 4, 1990, 3.6 (4.5k ram mer)

Test : California Bearing Ratio
Method : BS1377: Part 9, 1990, 4.3
In laboratory our Equipment:: - CBR-Test 50 machine 50kN capacity
Make: ELE - U.K.
 

Available at the laboratory's permanent facility This method is used to check the quality of sub grade and to determine the strength of granular sub-base (crusher run) during road construction. The test primarily involves shear deformation of the soil beneath a standard 50mm dia. Plunger.

Testing rate is not inclusive of reaction load. The cost of providing the reaction load shall be borne by the client. For investigation on existing roads, traffic management cost and stipulated working time may have to be considered.
