Abstract : Film density measurements of X-radiographs can be interpreted into soil density measurements under suitable controlled conditions and with proper calibration curves. The method is nondestructive, and determinations can be made for a model during various stages of testing. The method needs to be supplemented to observe deformation and shear planes.
