These methods cover the determination of the relationship between the moisture content and density of soils when compacted in u mold of a given size with a 10-Ib (4.5.kg) rammer dropped from a height of 18 in. (457 mm). Four alternative procedures are provided as follows:
The method to be used should be indicated in the specification for the material being tested. If no method is specified, the provisions of Method A shall govern.
