STP479: Suggested Method of Test for Bearing Ratio of Soils in Place

    Pages: 6    Published: Jan 1970


    Abstract

    This method covers the determination of the bearing ratio of soil tested in place by comparing the penetration load of the soil to that of a standard material. The method covers the evaluation of the relative quality of subgrade soils but is applicable to subbase and some base-course materials.
