Abstract : Two dual-drum vibratory rollers were evaluated and compared to the standard Air Force single drum roller. The rollers were evaluated for their ability to compact graded crushed limestone and their ability to reduce the time required to compact crushed limestone for use in runway repair. The repair was tested with F-4 load cart traffic. It was determined that an equal weight dual-drum roller can compact limestone as well as the present Air Force single drum roller and do the job in 50%-60% less time. (Author)
