    Abstract

    A small field plate bearing test was developed in response to a need for a method for measuring the physical state of railroad ballast. The recommended apparatus and procedures for this test are described in this paper. They evolved from a laboratory investigation of the variables influencing the test and field experience at a variety of track sites.
