Abstract : Tests were performed to determine the effect of the gyratory compactor's three variables (angle of gyration, vertical pressure, and number of revolutions) on the compaction characteristics of crushed limestone. Other information obtained during the test program included upper roller pressures, sample rebound after gyration, California Bearing Ratios indicating comparative soil strength, reproducibility of gyratory compaction results, and degradation of aggregate during gyratory compaction.
