Abstract

As noted in Part 1 of this report, the objective of the investigation was to apply principles of first-arrival seismic refraction to the problem of more quickly determining in-place dry density in highway materials. Part 2 of the report, contained herein, presents the results of both additional laboratory development of test techniques, plus extensive field test data.
