Stabilization of Materials by Compaction

by W.J. Turnbull,
C.R. Foster,

Serial Information: Journal of the Soil Mechanics and Foundations Division, 1956, Vol. 82, Issue 2, Pg. 1-23

Document Type: Journal Paper


Paper shows, for cohesive soils, how strength varies with both water content and density and how variations in rolling and lift thickness affect density and strength obtained in field compaction; study conducted as part of development of design criteria for airfield pavements for U S Air Force.

Subject Headings: Compacted soils | Soil strength | Strength of materials | Density (material) | Density currents | Field tests | Compaction (material) | Pavement design
