1. Calculate the bulk density of each compacted soil specimen. 2. Calculate the average moisture content of the compacted specimen and then its dry density. 3. Plot the dry densities obtained as ordinates against the corresponding
moisture contents as
abscissa, draw a smooth compaction curve passing through them, and obtain the values of maximum dry density (MDD) and optimum moisture content (OMC). Results |
