Average Density Compacted Soil

Soil and aggregate compaction density of soils utilizing a 55 lb hammer dropped at a height of 12 inches to compact layers of soil in a standard mold the test is used to define the optimum level of soil or aggregate that can be compacted into a unit volume with soil and aggregate compaction aashto 57 stone specs.

Effects of soil compaction

Soil density. the most direct effect of soil compaction is an increase in the bulk density of soil. bulk density is the mass of oven-dry soil in a standard volume of soil, often given as grams per cubic centimeter gcm3. optimum bulk densities for soils depend on the soil texture table.

Particle and bulk density

Bulk density of surface mineral soil typically falls within 1.0 to 1.6 gcm3 range, varying primarily with pore space. an average, well-aggregated soil has approximately 50 percent pore space. in general, soils with less pore space are more compacted soils with more pore space are less compacted..

Bulk density

The soil bulk density bd, also known as dry bulk density, is the weight of dry soil m solids divided by the total soil volume v soil. the total soil volume is the combined volume of solids and pores which may contain air v air or water v water, or both figure 1. the average values of air, water and solid in soil are easily measured.
