    Compaction – we are used to Proctor and “modified proctor”. Tested with sand as example (and found, that vibratory compactor’s 30 seconds is enough to get equal to serie of modified Proctor hammer blows per layer) – but Proctor method is not suitable for larger-grained materials, some gravels and clearly for crushed stones. There better suits the vibratory compactor. Does anyone has ideas and tested the compacting of crushed stones (my interest is on limestone)? Overall target is clear – to measure material’s e-modulus directly in Proctor-mold with Dynatest LWD.

    Standard indicates the limits to method – not for fine-grained claysoils, larger side limited – over 40 mm max 10% and over 20 mm max 30%. Thus basically different mixes of 0/31,5 seem to be okey, 0/63 needs to be verified.

    LWD on Proctor-mold. Two tested solutions – one by Sadaf, with collar on top of Proctor-mold, another by EST team, with lightweight cylinder to replace 150mm plate-ring under LWD (both options, 100 and 150 mm).
