This part of BS 1377 describes methods of test for determining characteristics related to the compaction of soils, which can be used as a basis for specifying requirements for soils compacted in the field.

This British Standard also includes a method for assessing an empirical strength criterion (the CBR value) of a compacted or undisturbed soil used as a sub-grade material for pavement construction.

Reference  is made to some of the classification tests described in BS 1377-2 and to BS 1377-1 for general requirements that are relevant to all Parts of this standard, and for methods of preliminary preparation of soil for testing.

The following methods of test have been  included in this edition of the standard:

  • determination of the maximum and minimum densities of granular soils
  • determination of the moisture condition value
  • determination of the chalk crushing value.

In the dry density/moisture relationship tests, and the California Bearing Ratio (CBR) test, sample preparation procedures have been set out in more detail than before, with explanatory flow diagrams.
