How to test for compaction of gravel bases before laying …

 · One of the challenges our asphalting contractor clients and their consultants have been struggling with is how to test the gravel base before laying asphalt on top to make sure you have compaction. They have been aware of the problem of non uniform compaction and soft spots but have not had a repeatable fast method of testing.

compaction in soil

The gap-filled gravel base should be divided into two steps when laying: first laying large gravel and compacting; then laying small gravel and finally compacting. For the first compaction, an 8-10t static tandem roller or a 5t vibratory roller should be used for rapid rolling, and all the interstitial material will be vibrated into the pores of coarse gravel.
