Based on the classic oedometer test during which a soil sample is loaded over an extended period in a cylindrical vessel, the Proctor test with different water contents can be accompanied by a dynamic plate load test. Depending on the portion of fines, the load-bearing capacity of the material tests collapses close to the Proctor maximum.
This test provides information on the optimal water content during laying and the subsequent compaction of the material used. Also the time the base course needs to reach the required Evd value after compaction can be estimated taking into account the course thickness.
