Determination of field density of soil by Sand Replacement Method (IS 2720-28)

  Introduction Sand replacement test method is used to determine the field density or in-place density of earth embankments, road fills, sub-grade, sub-base or any of compacted material. This method serves as the base upon which one can accept the density of a compacted material to a specified magnitude or to a percentage of maximum unit dry density …

Ductility Test of Bitumen (IS:1208-1978)

Introduction:- Ductility of bitumen is its property to elongate under traffic load without getting cracked in road construction works. Ductility test on bitumen measures the distance in centimeters to which it elongates before breaking. Apparatus required, theory, procedure, precautions, observations, reporting and recommended values of bitumen ductility is discussed in this article. Importance of Ductility …
