Mar 01, 2017  Since moisture content variation of 1–2% from optimum during field compaction is common, it was planned to have samples with moisture contents covering ±1.5% of the optimum. Then, soaked CBR tests were conducted on all compacted samples after they were placed in a bath of water for four days per AASHTO T193.
