As part of ES 521-A, Effect of Maximum Particle Size, Triaxial Compression and Compaction Tests, compaction tests were performed on a gravelly material with cohesive binder to determine the effect of large-size particles on maximum dry density and optimum water content and to obtain data for use in preparing the triaxial specimens. The effect of mold diameter and the effect of scalping both with and without replacement for oversize material were also investigated.
