Nuclear Density Gauge
The P-154 was placed in two lifts during construction. Nuclear density gauge readings were taken on each lift of P-154. The first lift of P-154 was tested at 12 different locations. The second lift of P-154 was tested at 14 different locations. Nuclear density gauge testing provided dry density, percent moisture, and percent compaction results. Nuclear density gauge testing was supplemented with limited sand cone testing results.
The P-154 was placed in two lifts during construction. One sand cone test was taken from each lift.
Sand cone testing provided wet density, dry density, percent moisture, max. dry density, and percent compaction results.
Results from a nuclear density gauge were compared to those from sand cone testing.
With more nuclear gauge readings taken per lift, a difference in average values for the lift was found.
However, nuclear gauge readings taken in proximity to sand cone test locations showed results with similar values.
