Grading sandstone maximum dry density

Proctor compaction test

The Proctor compaction test is a laboratory method of experimentally determining the optimal moisture content at which a given soil type will become most dense and achieve its maximum dry density.The test is named in honor of Ralph Roscoe Proctor [], who in 1933 showed that the dry density of a soil for a given compactive effort depends on the amount of water the soil contains during soil ...
