Field dry density by sand replacement method

The primary objective of the sand replacement method is to determine the dry density of soil. It is used as a control test to check if the soil has acquired the designated dry density after compaction. The determined in situ dry density is necessary for the design of pavement and highway as well as for the estimation of the quantity of the base

    Sand Cone Test ( Field Density Test By Sand Replacement

    The sand cone method is used for field density test in highway construction. In the field, the dry density test is performed to check the compaction of layers. Compaction is most beneficial for the preparation of sub base grade and different pavement layers and in the production of embankment in order to increase the steadiness and to lower
